Bold Democratic Leadership Once Again


Every day, it's harder to believe that the Democrats have any interest in actually standing up to the Republicans, who use sleaze and distraction to give themselves power:

 The Senate voted Thursday to condemn an advertisement by the liberal anti-war group that accused the top military commander in Iraq of betrayal.

The 72-25 vote condemned the full-page ad that appeared in The New York Times last week as Gen. David Petraeus, the top military commander in Iraq, testified on Capitol Hill. The ad was headlined: "General Petraeus or General Betray Us? Cooking the books for the White House."

It's no wonder how Max Baucus voted, but you might be surprised to learn that Jon Tester supported the resolution, too.

How about Barack Obama? 

Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, another contender for the Democratic nomination, did not vote, although he voted minutes earlier for an alternative resolution by Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.

Boy, that's leadership that's going to get my vote. 

Let's hear it for another humiliating day for the Democrats in the Senate. 

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
