Senate Votes to Condemn MoveOn for Ad Attacking General Petraeus

These clowns in Congress can't come together to resolve the disaster in Iraq, but they find the time to vote to pass a meaningless resolution condemning free speech. General Petraeus is not above criticism, and if he is carrying water for the White House then he is fair game like every other citizen:
The Senate on Thursday overwhelmingly passed a measure condemning MoveOn.org for a newspaper ad it ran last week attacking Gen. David Petraeus. The move came as President Bush accused Democrats of cowering to the liberal political action group.

The measure passed in a 72-25 vote, with none of the Democratic presidential candidates supporting it. Sponsored by Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn, never one to shy away from forcing Democrats to go on record on politically sticky issues, the amendment to the defense authorization bill did win the backing of 23 Democrats.

Don't Republicans regularly question the patriotism of Democrats who dare to call for an end to the quagmire in Iraq?
