Thoughts from a Yellow Dog Democrat living in Olympia, in the great BLUE state of Washington

I am a liberal because it is the political philosophy of freedom and equality. And I am a progressive because it is the political path to a better future. And I am a Democrat because it is the political party that believes in freedom, equality and progress. -- Digby

My Letter to Senators Murray and Cantwell

Please sign on as a co-sponsor to Senator Russ Feingold's censure resolution (http://www.dailykos.com/story/2006/3/12/10579/0414 ).


The President admitted to conducting a domestic spying program outside the scope of FISA, despite knowing that FISA is the exclusive means of such surveillance inside the United States.


President Bush broke the law, and this is the only way this Republican Congess can hold him accountable.


President admitted he did not brief the full intelligence committees. This is against the law.We don't have to wait for an investigation before censure.


President Bush admitted to his crimes publicly. An investigation is needed, but that should not preclude censure at this time.


Andrew Jackson was censured in 1834 for refusing to hand over papers to Congress and assuming power not granted by the Constitution. With his stonewalling of the investigation and by ignoring FISA, this is exactly what President Bush has done, and he should also be censured accordingly.


Please stand up and be counted.
