Ah, politics

Washington Post:
Democrats sharpened their attack yesterday on President Bush's warrantless surveillance of Americans, with a liberal senator [Russell Feingold (D-Wis.)] introducing a censure resolution and party leaders showing a willingness to debate the matter.

...Sensing a Democratic misstep, Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) labeled the resolution a "political ploy" and called for an immediate vote....
Heh. Nothing like some childish gaming on the Senate floor.

(Not that the Post has any slant, but a different framing of the lead line would have instead mentioned "warrantless surveillance of international conversations between al Qaeda and Americans.")
