Dumb Ideas

Maybe Feingold's censure resolution was a dumb idea. Maybe Senator Reid had a superior judo move planned and Feingold derailed it. Maybe the universe would be improved if Feingold hadn't chosen such a strategy. Maybe there were better ways to approach this basic issue.

I don't know. I have no idea. But I do know that whether or not Feingold's plan was a dumb one, a dumber plan was to run from it once he did it.

It's fair to think that Feingold had a dumb idea. I don't agree, but it's a reasonable position and I don't have all of the information necessary to really make a judgment.

But the question isn't whether Feingold made a dumb move. The question is given the move that Feingold made what should the Dems do? He made the move. They have to respond.

And running is a dumb response.
