Cheney Blasts McGovern, McGovern Shoots Back

When Darth Cheney gave a speech in the Windy City(!), he blasted the Democratic party as having "reverted" to the party of 1972.

George McGovern fights back in an op-ed piece in the LA Times that's well worth the read.

Excerpt:

The Democrats' 1972 platform was also in the forefront in pushing for affordable healthcare, full employment with better wages, a stronger environmental and energy effort, support for education at every level and a foreign policy with less confrontation and belligerence and more cooperation and conciliation.
So what's wrong with that? If that's "reverting", then bring it on.

All it shows is that the Democratic Party at its core cares about the same things in 2007 that they did in 1972.

Can you say that about the Rethugs? I didn't think so.
