Some Republicans are accusing the party's neoconservative hawks of playing dirty pool in an attempt to smear Sen. Rand Paul as a bigot for having an aide who once expressed admiration for Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth.
Civil libertarians and war opponents coped Wednesday with the realization that Tuesday's Republican coup had cost them their most outspoken voice in Congress: Wisconsin's junior senator, Democrat Russ Feingold.
Regardless of Tuesday's midterm election results, the 112th Congress will face stark choices on national security issues ranging from arms control to the size of the defense budget.
"It's really a lot like a legged Segway," said Michael Goldfarb, an engineer at Vanderbilt University who heads the exoskeleton project there, in a NPR report from last year. "You lean forward to walk forward, lean less forward and cause it to stop, lean back and cause it to sit."
"Feingold had a really atrocious record on war-on-terror and national security issues, but at least had the courage of his convictions on them," said GOP operative Michael Goldfarb. "He was straightforward about his desire to see terrorists brought to U.S. soil and for retreat and defeat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Fortunately, Wisconsin voters took a different view."
