More of the same

The endless frustration of honest and well-meaning members of Congress (assuming, of course, that such a species exists) must be the overwhelming public ignorance of what actually happens or fails to happen in our Nation's capitol.
Political stunts seem to now be the norm, and the combination of a biased (and often blatantly dishonest) media and a largely intellectually lazy population ensures that Congressmen of a certain political stripe have no reason to fear exposure.
Senator Feingold's resolution for censure (CBS paints him as a hero) is today's example, as Feingold refuses to even debate the issue and the Democrats refuse a vote.
