I suppose it's not so ironic that an anchor who can simultaneously hold an almost embarrassing man-crush on the President AND be vocally against the war can betray his DFH prejudice about those he considers "fringe far left".

David Shuster interviews IraqSummer/MoveOn participants protesting outside the Capitol as the Senate prepares for their all-nighter. Note their clear-spoken, calm and intelligent defense of both the importance of this protest in particular and exercising your civic right to protest in general.

Well, that's certainly a wholesome-looking crowd for an anti-war bunch...

UPDATE: Digby tipped us to thisĀ and says:

Apparently he was expecting to see some long haired college kids burning bras and taking over the ROTC building, which isn't a huge surprise. It's just the Washington establishment's irrational fear of hippies rearing its anachronistic head on
