MoveOn's Executive Director Eli Pariser joined David Shuster --filling in for Tucker Carlson-- to discuss MoveOn's factual Petraeus ad last week and the giant distraction non-binding resolution passed yesterday in the Senate condemning it. Shuster is a little tough with Eli, but his resolve was never shaken. The farcical resolution was nothing more than a political stunt by Republicans to distract from the content of the ad (and pathetically fallen for by some 20 Democrats) and was, as Eli points out, an "inside the Beltway" issue.

Pariser also brings up the fact that it's ridiculous to think that while our soldiers are dying in Iraq our Senate is debating a newspaper ad -- and ten days later the polls show the country moving with MoveOn's direction against the war, not against MoveOn. Is it any wonder for the Democrats that going along with these kinds of gutless stunts has managed to do little more than bring record low approval ratings for Congress?
