Nominated for Honorary Field Negro

So says The Hill Newspaper. There won’t be a vote on the Senate portion until after the Fourth of July. Sen. Russ Feingold has engaged in what we in the fields call “Field Negro Behavior”.

Objections by Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.) will push back an overhaul of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) until after lawmakers return in July, Democratic leaders said Thursday. Feingold is strongly opposed to language that would likely give telephone companies that participated in warrantless surveillance retroactive immunity from lawsuits.

But, 11 CBC members caved on the House version of this bill. And their silence is speaking loud enough to earn them primary challengers if they haven’t had them yet.

Why is it that those we expect to act like Field Negroes on important legislation, fly right past the Patio and into the House?
