All you fans of Shark and Shepherd on Dead Tree should be sure to read tomorrow morning's Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. The paper will be publishing an op-ed by Russ Feingold explaining his censure proposal, apparently written in response to the paper's editorial criticizing the censure idea as premature. I was asked to write a column explaining why his proposal is the dumbest thing since disco. (OK, that's not how they put it, but I embellish.)
Actually, I have to admit that they asked Arlen Specter first, but he was busy voting on matters critical to the fate of the Republic. All I was doing last night was watching hoop. Good thing I have his back.
Actually, I have no idea what Feingold wrote (it's against the paper's policy to disclose an op-ed to a critic who will then tee off on it) and don't know how responsive my piece will be.
