(Keywords: politics, senate, Wisconsin, if Kohl wants to sit on his butt, let him do it on his own time )
Herb did it. He lost me. I waited and waited and waited for some sort of reaction to the Iraq War resolution or Feingold's call for censure or anything at all that really matters. Herb Kohl has been a serial backbencher on issues that matter and more of a republican than a democrat on many issues.
So I'm going with someone who wants to matter. Rae Vogeler has come out as a Green Party candidate for Kohl's seat. Rae's one of the architects of the antiwar landslide, so she's one hell of a lot more connected to the people of Wisconsin than Kohl has been. People have talked about the war, they've talked about censure or even impeachment, but Kohl has been nowhere near those issues. He voted for this war and he's defended it since. He's been nothing more than Joe Leiberman-lite.
