MoveOn targets Gordon Smith with ads

MoveOn is targeting Oregon's Gordon Smith over the war in Iraq.
Move-On is spending relatively little money on the ad, $150,000 nationwide. Even so, the ad is another sign that Smith is on a short list of Republican Senators seen as vulnerable in the next election, especially on the issue of Iraq. Smith has criticized President Bush's plans to send 21,000 more American troops to Iraq.

But MoveOn's Eli Pariser blames Smith and other Republicans for voting to close debate on a resolution opposing the troop increase.
It's just terrible when "extreme partisan organizations," as a Smith staffer referred to MoveOn, get involved in politics. I wonder how MoveOn got its start, anyhow?

Oh, now I remember. The Devil in the Blue Dress, that was it. 'Tis a pity that poor Republican senators have to endure television ads, when they could use more time to talk out of both sides of their mouths about the Freedom Toast War. Look over there! A blogger said something sarcastic!
