grow up dot org

In the past I've been more amused than otherwise by the antics of MoveOn.Org, but this one makes the bile rise. Here speaks the self-proclaimed "netroots" of the Democratic party, calling a brave man a traitor. (What else does it mean to "betray us"?)

Meanwhile, a New York Times / CBS poll shows that 23 percent of the U.S. population approves of the way Congress is doing its job. In a separate question, people were asked who they would trust most to resolve the war in Iraq, and in this question, Congress got a resounding 21 percent, while the military got 68 percent. (The Bush administration got a 5 percent vote of confidence.) Of course it is precisely the President and the Congress who should resolve the situation, and not the military, but I am comforted that an overwhelming majority of the American people don't seem to share MoveOn.Org's opinion of the U.S. Army's leadership.
