Wrong Message, Wrong State

In what can charitably be called a political miscalculation, MoveOn.org bought radio ads in a Texas congressional district that last time voted 64% for President Bush. The ads call for maintaining the ban on off-shore oil drilling.

When the Democrat, Michael Skelly, running for election to Congress from the district, pointed out that this was the wrong kind of help, a spokesman for MoveOn bizarrely claimed that the ad was not in behalf of the candidate, but for the constituents.

Ooooo-kay.
