‘The President is a Crook!’

But so what, says Russ Feingold, the new McCainian-style gadfly of the Democratic Party. The president has, according to Feingold, committed an 'impeachable offense', but we shouldn't impeach him.  Worse than Clinton (obviously), he says, and even worse than Nixon (!), but we shouldn't impeach him. We should 'censure'. Does this mean we shouldn't have impeached Nixon? I don't get it. Why is this not accepted as shameless, undisguised posturing? He's been on about this whole impeachment business for a few months, but I don't think he's gotten any better at closing the deal.   

Here he he is on Meet the Press (again):
