Feingold goes Deaniac

Tomorrow Russ Feingold will become the darling of the MyDD and Kossites (if he isn't already). Tomorrow he will also doom his presidential bid before it even begins:
Sen. Russ Feingold, a Wisconsin Democrat, will call Thursday for the withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Iraq by Dec. 31, 2006.

Feingold, who is exploring a run for the presidency in 2008, told U.S. News: "I believe I am the first senator [to set a deadline]. It says: Here is the date by which we ought to finish the mission."
Setting a hard date for withdrawal. Nice. Russ, why don't we just start beheading our supporters in Iraq now and save the insurgents the trouble come January 1, 2007? Even John Kerry wasn't so foolish as to make a proposal like this. Talk about being stuck in Vietnam. Feingold apparently wants to deliver a Christmas gift to the American people-live network coverage of airlifts out of Baghdad as insurgents flood into the city. Yep, that should be good for the poll numbers. Feingold is apparently taking presidential politics courses at Howard Dean University.
