wherein we prove that the "wartime president" defense is inconsequential - no - make that outright "lame"

we've heard it before, and we're hearing it now:

"if the democratic party is going to be attacking the president in a time of war, then we are ready to vote and let’s see what the democratic party says,” frist told reporters right after the floor skirmish.
there are three prongs of logic that defeat the entire "he's a wartime president, so don't be mean to him" defense. and they each one depend on which "war" the repubbbs are talking about when they parrot this talking point, to wit: we suggest you continue to call your senators and demand they stand with sen. feingold in his resolution to censure awol for his illegal wire-tapping of american cititzens.

addendum: we discuss the fact (found via busy, busy, busy) that sen. dianne feinstein proposed censure of clinton in 1999 but refuses to support state her position on feingold here.

double addendum: we call sen. feinstein's office ourselves.

triple addendum: thanks to alegre's" dkos diary, we find moveon.org's" petition to censure awol.
