an exclusive report from Ames, Iowa
Campaigning heavily here over the past two weeks, Mr. Thompson has refined his message and yesterday released a 15-minute Web video laying out his qualifications and telling voters they need to pick a Republican nominee who is willing to call out Democratic leaders for abandoning their principles.\
“They’re all NEA, MoveOn.org, ACLU, Michael Moore Democrats,” Mr. Thompson charges in the video, which is on his campaign Web site. “They’ve allowed these radicals to take control of the party and dictate their course.”

I don’t know where this myth of Bob Beckel being one of the “good” Democrats came from, but it’s not grounded in reality… .\
He’s not one of the “good Democrats.” He’s a snake. I wish Tammy would have clocked him.
