Jen's latest Slowpoke details Conservative comfort levels with besmirching Men In Uniform. She writes on her blog:
I wasn't going to do a strip about the Petraeus hearings or the MoveOn ad...August's especially makes a good point. The Right-Wingers who wanted us to "Buy Danish" during the Mohammad cartoon controversy should be sending donations to MoveOn and calling for all American newspapers to print the Petraeus ad. Instead they are calling for treason charges.
Then the U.S. Senate decided to wade into the matter. In an astonishing swipe at the First Amendment, they sanctimoniously declared Gen. Petraeus to be off-limits to criticism, with 25 craven Democrats -- including my own Jim Webb, for whom I went door-to-door in a trailer park -- voting for the resolution. That did it.
Kelly Ferguson speculates on what might have transpired in the MoveOn brainstorming session.
