Stitch for Senate Helmet #15:
Knitted for Senator Russell Feingold
Admittedly I have a (very nerdy) crush on Senator Feingold. He was the ONLY senator to vote against the PATRIOT act and one of 23 which voted against the second Iraq war which, to me, tells me that he is a man who thinks about what his role in governments is and how that affects the people who have voted him into office. It must be pretty difficult to be that seeming lone voice of reason in the wilderness of rabid warmongering, lies painted to look like the truth and bizarre theocratic reasoning. I'm glad to see that the Senator is consistently outspoken and willing to keep on fighting. Any person who writes promises to the people on his or her garage door is my kind of Senator.
