Update: Jon Ham looks at John Edwards and imagines Wendell Willkie…
Update: The new MoveOn.org ad accusing Bush of betrayal.
Update: Here’s video of an FNC segment I did on MoveOn.org with E.D. Hill.
I did a special column for the NYPost today on MoveOn.org, the Democrat Party, their in-kind contributors at the NYTimes, and their thug allies who’ll be hitting the streets in DC this weekend. Here’s the conclusion:
Like Siamese twins, MoveOn and the Democratic Party are conjoined political entities fused at the heart and hip. There will be no repudiation. A house organ can’t reject itself.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) offered an amendment on the Senate floor to express the Sense of the Senate that Gen. David Petraeus, the commanding general, Multi-National Forces-Iraq, “deserves the full support of the Senate and strongly condemns the personal attacks on the honor and integrity of Gen. Petraeus and all the members of the United States Armed Forces.” House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) sponsored a similar measure. Naturally, Democratic congressional leaders and the party’s presidential candidates won’t allow the measures to come up for a vote.
Instead, just as anti-war zealots have plotted, the Dems are taking the “high road” in accusing Petraeus of “cherry-picking statistics or selectively massaging information” (the words are Florida Rep. Robert Wexler’s), while the Soros-funded henchmen drag the general’s name through the mud. Meanwhile, their socialist allies led by ANSWER are preparing to take over Washington beginning on Saturday.
The anti-war crew will hold a “die-in” besmirching the troops who believed in the mission in Iraq and gave their lives; they’re planning to shut down military recruiting stations in the nation’s capital, and they’ll continue with other attempts to portray our leaders in uniform as book-cookers and liars.
It is our job to hold these political thugs, their Democrat allies, and their journalistic partners accountable. Let’s not forgive and forget. Hound the Democrat presidential candidates out of their silence. Hound the Times for its advertising bargains to anti-war bullies. And hound the Soros-funded goons body for body, march for march, call for call, letter for letter.
Yes, there’s a war going on. No, let’s not “move on.”

And Jim Hansen at Blackfive is walking the talk by filing an FEC complaint about the Times’ military-bashing discount rate for MoveOn.org.
Move on? Hell, no.
