watch out for freedom's watch

The Post is calling Freedom's Watch the "conservative answer to MoveOn."

Well, keep an eye on Freedom's Watch. And don't expect them to be like MoveOn. Expect them to be much much worse - Expect them to be vicious. Expect them to be willing to stoop to personal attacks. Expect racial stereotyping. Expect them to cry "class warfare" whenever anybody wants to give the poor a break or to deny another tax-cut to the wealthy. Expect them to be well-funded and to operate in crucial states at not just the presidential level, but at Chris Van Hollen fears, at the level of individual congressional races.

Why do I expect this sort of behavior? Because this is nothing more than another branch of the right-wing noise machine. Why should it act any differently than Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and the rest?

They will make MoveOn look like the League of Women Voters.
