No DNC attacks, are there?

The Left isn’t attacking President Bush, are they?

From hipsters to professionals to aging hippies, the audience was as diverse as the talent on stage. Attendees paid $25 to $500 to watch performances by rocker Perry Farrell, techno-musician Moby, singer Natalie Merchant and hip-hop collective The Roots.

Host Janeane Garofalo provided salty commentary throughout, most notably referring to senior presidential political adviser Karl Rove (search) as a feminine hygiene product, evoking a Democratic fund-raiser two months ago in which comedienne Whoopi Goldberg raised Republican hackles by using Bush’s name to refer to part of a woman’s anatomy.

The event, sponsored by, also unveiled a new TV ad campaign featuring such Hollywood stars as Scarlett Johannson, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos and Matt Damon. Several of the stars appearing in the ads were on hand as were other celebrity speakers, including actress Edie Falco, comedian Al Franken and actor and musician Kevin Bacon. But the longest and most enthusiastic standing ovation of the evening was saved for former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean.

Uh huh. Come on, Mr Kerry (cannot call him Senator, since he doesn’t perform the actual job), step up to the plate:

A spokesperson for the Republican National Committee (search) said he had not seen the ads, but criticized Kerry for indirectly endorsing them.

“The president has already asked John Kerry to denounce all of the commercials being produced by 527 groups,” said Scott Hogenson. “If John Kerry is against some 527 ads, he should be against all 527 ads the way the president is.”

Well, John? Any answer? Oh, wait, I forgot. The Left is allowed to do whatever they want, but the Right has to stand for censorship, personal unfactual attacks, and so on. Welcome to the Democratic version of America, where the Constitution only applies to a limited few. Where “Do As I Say and Not As I Do” will replace “In God We Trust.” Where it is ok to release other peoples medical records. Where an Vietnam War protest leader who was present when the discussion turned towards assasinating US Senators can run for President. Where the same man had unsanctioned meetings with North Vietnamese and Viet Cong leaders while we were at war with them. That is a serious violation of the law:

Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
