Sister Souljah moment

Any Democrat, particularly one running for president, should not pass up this opportunity to denounce what Mike LaRoche calls "criminalizing political disagreement" that Moveon.org in their full-page NYT's ad yesterday directed at General Petraeus. Bob Krumm is calling it Moveon's McCarthyism moment. (Hat tip: Mike K.) I'd thought of that too, but what will make it a McCarthyism moment or not is how the public responds. If it's with outrage, then maybe; if it's with a jaded shrug, then not so much.

Update: On the other hand, Moveon has lots of money; Sister Souljah not so much.

Update II: I'm very testy about this. Via Instapundit here's a list of congress members who've gotten donations from MoveOn. You know how people criticize Republicans for not reaching out enough to Black and Hispanic voters? When Democrats and their operatives stop treating the military like a political arm of the Republican party, they'll earn their respect and probably some more votes.

Not that they need the votes lately. They are after all the majority party.

Great post, Nancy. Thanks for the blog-love!

Exactly. The Dems think they have the '08 election in the bag, but if they keep this nonsense up the GOP just might do better than expected.
