Congress Torture

Get Ned Lamont On The Phone

What would it take to bring viable primary challenges against Schumer and Feinstein next time around? They're both up for reelection in 2010. And they both deserve it after this awful week in the senate.

Schumer's remarks last night during the Mukasey debate were like eery scenes from a tragic future documentary about torture in which the filmmakers show hapless senators lamenting the policy but voting to endorse it anyway.

Then there's Feinstein who has come out in support of telecom immunity in the new FISA bill.

We've done it before. Two years from now, what say we wrangle a couple of strong Democratic netroots challengers in New York and California?
