MoveOn Goes After McCain

The Chron spotlights the efforts of leftyish groups to do what Barack "Hit back? Moi?" Obama won't: spend millions on brutal attack ads against John McCain. Front and center is Berkeley's very own MoveOn.org, which had rolled out a new ad hammering McCain for retaining advisor Charlie Black. Black, you may recall, has lobbied on behalf of Ferdinand Marcos, Mobutu Sese Seko, and Jonas Savimbi. The presence of dictators' lobbyists on McCain's team has emerged as a weakness in the last few weeks; aides Doug Davenport and Doug Goodyear resigned following revelations that they lobbied on behalf of the odious Burmese regime. Now, MoveOn.org is planning to whack that nerve again.
