Of Principle and Diffidence

Bill at Liberal Oasis reminds us that when Diane Feinstein proposed her censure resolution for Bill Clinton's extra-marital blow job she had a number of Democratic co-sponsors who are still in the Senate:
Daniel Akaka
Max Baucus
Byron Dorgan
Dick Durbin
Dianne Feinstein
Daniel Inouye
Jim Jeffords
Ted Kennedy
John Kerry
Herb Kohl
Mary Landrieu
Carl Levin
Joe Lieberman
Blanche Lincoln
Barbara Mikulski
Patty Murray
Jack Reed
Harry Reid
Jay Rockefeller
Chuck Schumer
Ron Wyden
Of course there were four Republican co-sponsors as well: Pete Domenici, Mitch McConnel, Gordon Smith and Olympia Snowe. But we'll just asume that these members of the GOP Ladies' Smelling Salt Society do, in fact, find a little bj action to be more objectionable than illegally spying on American citizens (so complex and hard to wrap their feeble little heads around). So we will just leave them to their lavender-scented hankies and not expect too much of them.

The rest of them -- WTF?

If you feel like calling and asking, the numbers are right here.

Note: Sorry about the site confusion, we're having yet another bumpy migration.
