Russ Feingold -- the senator about to lose his seat in Wisconsin -- continues to cling to the devastation of legislation passed over the last two years, turning a blind eye to the people, in full on denial of what is about to happen to him, emphatically stating, "...I don't think we want to go backwards..." so behind in the polls he can't see straight.
Yeah, I think we do -- that is, if you think restoring America to her founding principles and values is a step in that direction.
As a whole, we like the center -- or rather, the spot just right of center; that's where we like to live.
