I love Russ Feingold!

Okay, angry as I was about a recent “Arbitration” agreement I was forced to sign in my workplace–basically, a document that mandates I  can’t sue my company if I ever get fired, because that lawsuit would just go to an “independent arbiter” paid by my company to ignore such subtleties in the case as “legality”–I decided to write my Congresspeople about it.  I actually got an email back from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (or her intern) today saying that there’s a bill already sitting in queue in the Senate about this: S. 1782,  the Arbitration Fairness Act.  And it’s sponsored by none other than Russ Feingold

How much Congressional goodness can come from one man?  Besides working for campaign finance, trying hard as hell to prevent retroactive telecom immunity, and censuring the president (though sadly, not calling for his impeachment), if you look at the list of bills he’s crafted or co-sponsored, he’s one of the most reasonable and flat-out wonderful people in Congress using his powers for truth, justice, and the American way.  He was even the only Senator to vote against the Patriot Act! If I wasn’t straight, and he didn’t look like my orthodentist, I would totally fuck him.

Oklahoman by birth. Angeleno by fate. I've been in half a dozen bands and own 25 cubic feet of old records. Thank God for Ikea shelves.
