Shamless Dems vote to condemn

Here are the shameful Democratic senators who voted to condemn today.

Baucus (D-MT)
Bayh (D-IN)
Cardin (D-MD)
Carper (D-DE)
Casey (D-PA)
Conrad (D-ND)
Dorgan (D-ND)
Feinstein (D-CA)

Nelson (D-FL)

Paul Begala says it best that Democrats Should Attack Bush, Not MoveOn.
Before a single Democrat condemns MoveOn's ad, they should insist that George W. Bush and the Republican Party repudiate the anti-military smears on war heroes that have been the hallmark of Mr. Bush's political career.

Too many Democrats still think Mr. Bush's presidency is on the level. Let's be clear. Mr. Bush is not leading a serious, sober discussion about public discourse during a war. He wants to divide progressives and score political points. We should not let him. Throughout his career he's been willing to tolerate and benefit from vicious lies about military men. We should not concede that he is legitimately angry now.
Why the Democratic Party continues to give the Republicans any sort of ammunition is beyond me. When will it stop?

Sneak propaganda masquerading as political action is reprehensible, whether it is eli parisier @ moveon doing it, or karl rove.

If you condemn swift boat (and I do) you should condemn the petraeus ad

With "friends" like moveon, who needs enemies?
