binary time posts are always rife with errors: remove the "has" after
coulter. (replace with "has been" - ha ha.) "HIS assholic schtick" should
read "ALL assholic schtick".  replace "see" rwa's with "hear".

All sides take the most extreme and unhinged speech from
other sides, and then portray it as representative.

In this case, the hit against MoveOn is deserved. They're
a big time force now, with their years of electronic
activism, AfterDark seed money, and now backing from Soros
and others. If they carelessly wander outside the
recognized bounds of mainstream discourse, that should
be highlighted.

It's even for their own good. This visceral Bush-hating
and hyperbole plays well to the already converted, and
animates the MoveOn activist core, but is distasteful to
the people the Dems need to succeed nationally. They should
be happy they screwed up, and took the criticism, now --
rather than in the waning days of a campaign, where their
poor taste could smear all anti-Bush criticism.

If they repeat the error, they'll have no one to blame
but themselves.
