Monday, September 10, 2007 should be ashamed of itself.

I'm a liberal through and through. I wear the label with pride. I refuse to treat it as the pejorative term that certain talking heads try to make it out to be. Which is why it makes me so sad when a liberal organization like stoops to such new lows in an attempt to make a lousy argument. To coincide with General Petraeus' testimony today, took out a full page ad in the New York Times with a picture of said general over the text "General Petraeus or General Betray Us?". This personal mudslinging is the worst element of what has become of political dialog in this country. Please, let's discuss ideas and bring back accountability. Let's passionately argue about the direction this country is going. But please let us not make personal attacks against a man doing a difficult job in a poisonous political climate. A man who swore an oath to country and constitution. A man whose uniform should put him squarely outside of any idealogical debate or diatribe., you should be ashamed of yourselves. If this is the kind of activity you sponsor then I refuse to be any part of it.
