The Party of Tolerance

Democratic Senator Ken Salazar of Colorado campaigned on a promise to support an up-or-down vote on Bush's judicial nominees. He broke his promise. James Dobson's Focus on the Family called him on it, and ran ads criticizing Salazar and other Democrats for their delaying tactics. In return, Salazar said, during a television interview, "From my point of view, they are the Antichrist of the world."

So, Chairman Dean, how's that plan to win back the religious vote going, anyhow?

UPDATE 2 10:42 a.m.: Don't miss this excellent follow-up post by WILLisms, including the ad that prompted Salazar's outburst, and some good background on the campaign promise...
