Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
MoveOn.Org, the immensely popular anti-Bush website designed to help elect Senator John Kerry, has posted a list of "victories" designed to rally its rapidly-fading fanbase.
Among the 7 listed "victories" they take credit for, the most eye-catching were a Senate approval of an amendment providing guidelines for US treatment of foreign POWs (in response to the Abu Ghraib scandal), and the failure of a Federal Marriage Amendment.
While these accomplishments may seem significant for MoveOn and its followers, they are really no victories at all. The United States of America has maintained a track record of excellent POW treatment over the past 75 years. And, although no Federal Amendment has been passed, each state given the chance to vote on the issue of Gay Marriage have all given a resounding NO!
The real issue at hand is why the website and its editors continue to dwell on the Abu Ghraib scandal, but have yet to condemn the Iraqi terrorists for their beheadings and other savage acts against civilians in the country.
It seems that in the liberal media, it is of first priority to see past the facts, bash America, and spin positives in a political world full of negatives for both themselves and their agendas.
And one more thing -- while this is all going on, letters to President Bush can still be sent to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. God Bless America.
And let us not forget, contribtions can be made at ground zero. This is your brain, this is your brain on Bush.
Fuggetaboutit! You have had no respect to salvage.
How can they salvage what they never had?
Puh-leeze, Moveon.org and respect in the same sentence? Surely, you jest!
Move on, moveon.

The world wants to know...How can they salvage respect where there never was any respect!?! It is time for them to just "move on" into that hole they have been digging for themselves and pull the dirt in on top of themselves.
Shouldn't that be 'moveover'.com cuz THE BIG DOG HAS MOVED IN!!!!!
7 listed "victories" they take credit for:
1- After 60 lonesome years, George Soros finally gets laid.
2- Michael Moore's bank account is bursting at the seams.
3- Bob Shrum's bank account is bursting at the seams.
4- The founders of MoveOn's bank account is bursting at the seams.
5- Jimmy Carter made many new friends.
6- They stood up to Bush's henchman and kept the U.S. from becoming a massive barbed wire enclosed encampment, and insured the future of democracy.
7- All MoveOn members got a lot of souveniers to remind them of their fond memories of kerry/edwards
The rats are only loyal to a point, then they jump ship fast.
Moveon.org was a scam to seperate the fool from their money.
MoveOn has to stand in line behind the other big losers. Dan Rather, Walter Cronkite, John Zogby, John Edwards.....
Speaks for itself--illustrates whose side they are on.
maybe they can salvage arafat.
moveon.org only appealed to the Dems emotions, not intellect...one would require intellect to understand that moveon.org was trying to "salvage respect"...the dems have proven YET again...they really don't get it because they don't have the IQ to "get it"...
