"Just Tell Them...

I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Keeping Sarah Palin Out of the White House becomes the Stated Goal of Move-On.Org

As reported at CNN.

"The news came as MoveOn.org began e-mailing members Tuesday, asking them to fund a rapid response ad blasting Palin's new Washington Post op-ed that criticized President Obama's position on "cap and trade" legislation — a major part of the administration's effort to overhaul the nation's energy policy.

The group said Palin was positioning herself as the face of conservative opposition to Obama's energy policy, telling supporters her op-ed was "a marvel of misinformation and outright lies.""

The Op Ed they are upset about is the one printed in the Washington Post. At first, the Obots railed that the piece was too intelligent for Sarah to have written. Now they claim it is a "marvel of misinformation and outright lies."

So... which is it fellas?

Clearly, Move-On recognizes Sarah Palin as a contender for Obama's job in 2012.

Personally, I will never forget what Move-On did to Hillary. They back-stabbed her early in the primaries to aid Obama in defeating her. (He was still unable to garner the majority of Democratic primary votes, but was awarded the nomination anyway.) This group ... 'Move-On" (to which I once belonged and donated) is no longer to be trusted.

But, we can take heart. If they see fit to mount a smear campaign against Sarah Palin, they must be quaking in their boots about her persuasive powers. Their mounting of such a campaign will likely catapult her to fame amongst all who despise Move-On for their dirty, underhanded, ACORNesque tactics.

H/T to PUMA blogger, Womanstate for alerting on this article. Without her help, I would not have seen CNN's synopsis.

    Seems Move-On is asking for money to point out "false" claims by Sarah - not much of a campaign - more of of a fund raiser. Putting a value on things in the "common" - like clean air - is the capitalist solution to environmental problems. Sarah is worried about the "tax" but the system can be made revenue neutral, and if no net new tax to the government, why is she not endorsing the idea or at least saying the net new tax intake should be zero? Meanwhile, Move-On post its campaign to spread lies about Hillary , has no credibility. They are to be ignored - and their being for something does not mean I'm against it, nor does their being against something mean mean I'm for it. They are to be ignored.

  2. I agree. Move-On is to be ignored.

    The cap and tax issue is a complex one. I am still studying it, and have yet to formulate an opinion.
