Great, just great:
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.
We'll have a list of Dems who backed this thing and Dems who voted against it in a bit. Stay tuned.
At least we know who our allies are. A list of Democrats who hate you is coming up soon.
Update: Roll Call vote is up. I'll reproduce the list here soon.
Update 2: Dems who voted to condemn a specific act of political speech, and stab their allies in the back:
Baucus (D-MT), Bayh (D-IN), Cardin (D-MD), Carper (D-DE), Casey (D-PA), Conrad (D-ND), Dorgan (D-ND), Feinstein (D-CA), Johnson (D-SD), Klobuchar (D-MN), Kohl (D-WI), Landrieu (D-LA), Leahy (D-VT), Lincoln (D-AR), McCaskill (D-MO), Mikulski (D-MD), Nelson (D-FL), Nelson (D-NE), Pryor (D-AR), Salazar (D-CO), Tester (D-MT), Webb (D-VA)
I wonder what they will vote to condemn in the future. Maybe it will be one of my blog posts that Republicans don't like. Maybe it will be something someone in their family says about Bush that Ann Coulter didn't like. Let the condemnations begin!
Dems who voted nay:
Akaka (D-HI) Bingaman (D-NM), Boxer (D-CA), Brown (D-OH), Byrd (D-WV), Clinton (D-NY), Dodd (D-CT), Durbin (D-IL), Feingold (D-WI), Harkin (D-IA), Inouye (D-HI), Kennedy (D-MA), Kerry (D-MA), Lautenberg (D-NJ), Levin (D-MI), Menendez (D-NJ), Murray (D-WA), Reed (D-RI), Reid (D-NV), Rockefeller (D-WV), Sanders (I-VT), Schumer (D-NY), Stabenow (D-MI), Whitehouse (D-RI), Wyden (D-OR)
Democrats who didn't vote:
Biden (D-DE), Cantwell (D-WA), Obama (D-IL)
Consdering that Obama voted on the Boxer amendment to the "we hate political speech from our allies" resolution, it seems quite telling that he didn't vote on this, only one hour later.
