I received a call from the DNC the other day asking for money, again. I can usually be counted on for a few bucks here and there, but not that day. I was feeling particularly feisty, and when they told me that the call was being recorded, I took that as my cue to let them have it.

I highly doubt the impeachment talk is going to go anywhere, but at least the subject is being raised. It's about time, huh.
On a side note, that very same day, I got a call from Russ Feingold's Progressive Patriot's Fund, asking me to be a part of their Patriot Corps. I gladly accepted. I've said it before, and I'll say it again -- Feingold should be the candidate. Maybe next time...
I believe it's only a matter of time before Russ brings up the "I" word, too.
And, of course, Feingold is ahead of the curve on this issue:
