8. Is there something before Congress to critisize MoveOn.Org?
I guess I haven't been keeping up, and cannot believe, if that is so, that this would actually be brought up

Then again, looking at the last seven years nothing surprises me

Constitutional ammendments to ban the burning of the flag, or marriage only between a man and a woman

What a mess

9. Publically condemning free speech in a bill, is worse than a smear.
And I hope no Democrat votes with these right-wing assholes on this...

26. They don't disagree with the ad. Disagreement implies a debate on merits of an argument.
They're not debating the facts of the MoveOn ad.

They're debating MoveOn.org's right to speak them.

6. I thought use of 'betrayus' in the ad made it ineffective, but I would not vote for this...
There is a difference between disagreeing with the use of the word 'Betrayus' in the ad, and condemning an organization that is right on the subject matter.

This is a shameful crass attempt by Repubs to hijack public opinion by disinformation and innuendo.

I hope a Democrat will say as much from the floor.

7. This reminds me of two adolescents swapping punches
just to see who is the baddest. It is adolescent on all sides. I'm am once again embarrassed to be a Democrat.

17. Why is this even being addressed in the Senate?
This shit should never be tolerated. Where is the Democratic leadership, and why are they permitting this?

Harry? What the hell are you doing? You have heard of the 1st Amendment, have you not? So why are you wasting time on this?

25. For diversion of course and to attempt to highlight more smears
against the democratic leadership.....insulting yes, but then again after a time you do become somewhat immune even at the same time you do feel disgust for this obvious waste of tax payers money....
