    Wow, stop the presses. A far-left organization slams the Republican candidate for president. Is this really news, or are you going to post every time this happens? :rolleyes:

    i don't think it's a very good ad, and don't think it's a good idea to hammer on the "hundred year" misnomer. there are more than enough real reasons to disagree with mccain that there's really no need to go trumpeting this.

    I think it's odd that the GOP is actually trying to stop this ad. Just gives it more legitimacy. Someone needs to criticize McCain though. No one else seems to. Love that Moveon is called "far left" though, still, considering how in line it is with a majority of Americans and their current beliefs, especially in regards to the war.

    There are some things McCain should be criticized over, but still barely hearing anything negative in the MSM:

    McCain Strongly Rejected Long-Term Iraq Presence: "Bring Them All Home"

    Nothing?

    Yeah, I'm surprised they're not slamming him for changing his message whenever he gets a new special interest holding his lead.

    At least this is about the substantive issues that affect America, rather than endless coverage of Obama's spat with his former pastor.

    I have a feeling this might be a bigger story:

    GI bill sparks Senate war

    I've heard rumblings that some of the more liberal veteran orgs are not happy about this and may follow Moveon's lead with ads of their own.

    OK, I was wrong, it wasn't at all. Support the troops! Anyway, more on McCain:

    What John McCain Told Me, and What it Says About How Far He's Fallen
    Mccain Vs. Mccain
    That, and now he's back to talking to G. Gordon Liddy, who for some reason is a legitimate commenter now despite all he's done, while we're still talking about Wright. Maybe his good luck charms are working. Or that he's still seen as a maverick while the MSM stays virtually silent on the fact that he isn't.

    If anyone is so inclined, you can play this game that shows the differences between Bush and McCain (the results may surprise you):

    Well leaving aside the fact that "far left" is merely a term used to label anyone with ideas which may not be fully in step with the presiding medieval ideology.I'd say that CNT (
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confederación_Nacional_del_Trabajo
    ) was a left wing organisation.The "far" is just a rein-forcer of abuse that says more about the user than who it's used against.

    For some reason here, everything that isn't right is labeled left. Sometimes far left. Even it isn't. Now I would say Moveon is a liberal organization, but American liberal, which for most other countries is barely moderate. And while they do lean our left, once again I would have to point out that partisan does not always have to equal untrue. Biased maybe, but given the facts put forth, still waiting for someone to point out how they're wrong. More on the former maverick:

    You don't think I'd actually dirty my hands by doing it myself do you? I have people to do my dirty work for me. I just look down from my castle and watch.

    The whole idea is ludicrous it's not just in the US although it is worse there,generally speaking Communism is of the left and Fascism of the right,no problem so far,but most people think Communism equals USSR and China,wrong, authoritarian state Capitalism and therefore of the right,similar misunderstandings go for Facsism, Bush,Pol Pot etc nasty ideologues yes,Facsist? no.

    In tight Senate votes, McCain not a maverick
