Vigilante right-wing PR

Seeing that the Republican echo chamber is floundering in the WMD department, our old pals over at Move America Forward are up to their wacky antics again. Remember boycotting "Fahrenheit 9/11?" Attacking Cindy Sheehan? And the wingnut radio host tour of Iraq? Well, now they're claiming that they've got documents that the military and intelligence agencies don't, showing clearly that there are WMD in Iraq. From the Wall Street Journal:


"The White House has really done a poor job of getting the message out, which is why we've had to step into the breach," says California-based Republican political strategist Sal Russo, one of the group's three founders. "They should do a better job of coordinating with those willing to get out and tell the story. We shouldn't be the only ones out here fighting."

Oooooo, we like to watch fissures and fractures in the infamous machine of doom!
