Senate Votes to Condemn MoveOn for Ad Attacking General Petraeus
The Senate on Thursday overwhelmingly passed a measure condemning MoveOn.org for a newspaper ad it ran last week attacking Gen. David Petraeus. The move came as President Bush accused Democrats of cowering to the liberal political action group.
The measure passed in a 72-25 vote, with none of the Democratic presidential candidates supporting it. Sponsored by Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn, never one to shy away from forcing Democrats to go on record on politically sticky issues, the amendment to the defense authorization bill did win the backing of 23 Democrats.
Let's forget the "Sticks and Stones" and realize that we have Free Speech. Forget the words of the ad and instead worry about ending this senseless war and making sure we don't expand it to Iran. That's the vote you should take, Senators! That's the vote we demand.
