So, Sean Hannity and the Right Wing radio gang go nuts over the MoveOn.Org ad on Friday.
All afternoon, Rush, Mark Levin, Sean et al are blasting MoveOn.Org with caller after caller questioning Move On.Org’s patriotism, sanity, support for the troops, etc.
And many Democratic law makers also thought the ad was a bit over the top ----Senator Carl Levin, and Sen. John Kerry, for example.
"I don't like any kind of characterizations in our politics that call into question any active-duty, distinguished general who I think under any circumstances serves with the best interests of our country," said Kerry.
Of course, personal attacks on the patriotism of a sitting general are never permissible in the middle of an unjustifiable and unpopular war.
I am sure the same thing happened to General Westmoreland when he lied about the Viet Nam War.
The more things change the more they remain the same. But the ad did strike a nerve and it gets people talking.
Anyway, MoveOn.Org released a new TV ad---one that moves from 'betray us' to 'betrayal of trust'.
Never mind these are the same people--Bush, Cheney et al-- who lied about weapons of mass destruction, the number of troops it would actually take to win the war, how long we would be there, and implying that Iraq had something to do with 9/11.
Of coure, none of that matters.
What seems to matter more to Sean & Co. is that MoveOn.Org attacked the General’s personal integrity and patriotism. Obviously, a much more important issue than the 3000 plus who gave their lives in the war.
