Every time I think that MoveOn.org can't go any lower, they prove me wrong.
It's no secret that they ran a full page ad in the New York Times, maligning General Petraeus. What most people don't know is that they paid far less than the usual $167,000 for such an ad. In fact, they paid only $65,000. Does this mean that the NYT was in cahoots with the MoveOn morons? If so, it shows that what little credibility the Times had left is now gone and that they have become nothing more than a mouthpiece organization for a leftist group that is out of touch with the American people. It also means that both organizations may run afoul of election finance laws. According the FEC's Campaign Guide for Corporations and Labor Organizations, the two may have made a “like kind exchange”, something that is illegal under the existing campaign finance laws.
But I wouldn't expect that to stop MoveOn.org.
Interestingly enough, the New York Sun sees MoveOn as worse than Tailgunner Joe McCarthy, saying that they have "abandoned decency and bersmirched decent people not in pursuit of a more aggressive and broader fight against a vast evil but in pursuit of a capitulation."
Sounds just about right.
