Senate Dems Afraid Rush Limbaugh Will Say Something Bad About Them

-- by Dave Johnson

Half of the "Democrats" in the Senate voted to condemn MoveOn today. They are afraid that Rush Limbaugh might say something bad about them.

I'm a member of MoveOn, so they were voting to condemn ME.

Election Central | Talking Points Memo | Reso Condemning MoveOn Passes Overwhelmingly, With Lots Of Dems,

The GOP-introduced resolution condemning MoveOn just passed by a huge margin, 72-25. Roughly half the Democrats in the Senate supported it.

A couple of the more interesting votes: Jim Webb, who just yesterday was a Netroots hero, voted for it, even though the last thing he needs as a military guy is cover on something like this.

Meanwhile, Hillary -- who's been under assault by Rudy for refusing to condemn MoveOn but who's also locked in a tough Dem primary -- stood her ground and voted No.

The list of "Democrats" requiring progressive primary opponents the next time they are up for re-election follows:

Dems voting for the reso:

Baucus

Bayh

Cardin

Carper

Casey

Conrad

Dorgan

Feinstein

Johnson

Kohl

Landrieu

Leahy
