Barr endorses Feingold

2010-10-29 18:22:42.092769+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Bob Barr endorses Russ Feingold:

What I look for in Washington are folks in the Senate and the House who put the Constitution first. Not the "R" or the "D", not partisan politics but the Constitution. And what you have in Russ, and I have worked closely with him over a number of years to try to rein in the Patriot Act, to try to rein in the government surveillance and so forth — this is a man who understands the Constitution, who supports and fights sometimes against his own party to defend the Constitution in the Congress of the United States in ways that are much more consistent and much more proactive than a lot of Republicans.

Passed along by Rafe, who observed: "Hey, look at the people with discernible principles."

Barr seems to have matured somewhat in his political philosophy. But let us not forget his $30 million suit against Clinton, Carville, and Flynt for emotional distress while championing a $250K limitation on pain and suffering in malpractice suits.

"this is a man who understands the Constitution"

Except that pesky first amendment:


[Note that this is not meant as an endorsement of Buck. And Feingold may have fought the good fight on other issues. But on freedom of speech he's been terrible.]
