Cindy Sheehan has some competition for the "Moonbat of the Century" award. Wisconsin's very own Senator Russ Feingold has set his sites on the award. Feingold's PAC, Progressive Patriots Fund, has a new video out, supporting Feingold's moonbat theories.
In the video, the moonbats accuse the President of using the terrorists surveillance program to get "anybody who has the nerve to disagree with you." Of course, the moonbats have produced no evidence to date, that this theory is true. However, one of the benefits of being a moonbat, is that no evidence whatsoever is necessary, in order to make a moonbat claim.
Both Charlie Sykes and Jessica McBride have addressed Feingold's theories on their blogs.
The most disconcerting problem when looking at this issue, is discovering that being a moonbat pays and it pays very well. Yesterday, the AP had a story out showing exactly how well being a moonbat is paying off for Feingold-
Feingold's leadership PAC, the Progressive Patriots Fund, pulled in $282,000 last month, according to a report filed with the Federal Election Commission Thursday. That compares with $105,000 the PAC raised in February.
Feingold's PAC finished the period with $466,000 in the bank.
Playing on a person's anger and hatred of President Bush has raised a lot money for Feingold's PAC and will continue to raise money for him-
"I bet that really did stimulate contributions a lot," said Charles Franklin, a political science professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. "The censure resolution, and lack of any other Democrat backing it, really put a lot of Bush-haters onto Feingold."
I wonder if Feingold is proud of the fact that a bunch of contributors, full of hatred, are supporting him?
