“That’s fine and good, but this is about Iraq”

| February 21, 2007

The Washington Post’s Juliet Eilperin and Michael Grunwald report that the nut…er…net-roots are eating their own DINOs;

Progressive blogs — including two new ones, Ellen Tauscher Weekly and Dump Ellen Tauscher — were bashing her as a traitor to her party. A new liberal political action committee had just named her its “Worst Offender.” And in Tauscher’s East Bay district office that day in January, eight MoveOn.org activists were accusing her of helping President Bush send more troops to Iraq.

Helping? Jennifer Barton, the lawmaker’s district director, played them a DVD of Tauscher blasting the increase as an awful idea in a floor speech eight days earlier.

“The words are fine and good, but we are looking for leadership,” scoffed Susan Schaller, one of the activists.

Leadership? Barton showed them the eight golden shovels Tauscher had received for bringing transportation projects to her suburban district, along with numerous awards she had won for her work protecting children, wetlands, affordable housing and abortion rights.

“That’s fine and good,” Schaller repeated, “but this is about Iraq.”

I guess we can’t expect the mindless drones of the Left to focus on more than one topic at a time. It just illustrates the fact that the Democrats think they can win the Presidential election in 2008 by focusing all of their energy on the war in Iraq. they think that their anti-war campaign is what won them the majority (despite the fact that the polls tell a different story – see Sister Toldya, Captain’s Quarters – despite what the Washington Post says).

Their “10s of thousands” of protesters have given them the false bravado to start throwing their own under the bus. Despite what that intellectually vacant strategy did for Joe Lieberman.

By the way, the Washington Post does their best to defend Ellen Tauscher by explaining that she used to support the war and she used to be against Pelosi, but, honest, she’s changed now.
