DSCC Wakes Up

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has joined the fray with this hard-hitting, factual spot:

Sen. Collins will protest that she supports efforts to recoup reconstruction costs from the Iraqis. But as we've noted, that's a small drop in the world's biggest bucket. It's way too little, way too late.

So Collins can complain, but the ad is right when it asserts that she has repeatedly given President Bush a blank check in Iraq, and that Mainers are bearing the cost.

Sorry: You can't unsign a blank check. And you can't wipe away six years of moral abdication with a token, politically-motivated proposal that does nothing to solve the underlying problem.

UPDATE: We're hearing that this ad is already on the air--and has been since earlier today.
