The Selective Moral Authority of Gold Star Moms

The Minnesota Democratic Party is pressing a vicious attack upon Gold Star Mothers who support the causes that their sons gave their lives for.

In Minnesota we are in the middle of a story that has dropped from view in the media, but it is a story that should attain national prominence. The Democratic Party has undertaken a campaign to suppress two advertisements giving voice to the sentiments of Iraq war veterans and Gold Star Families who support the war.

Brian Melendez is the chairman of the Minnesota Democratic Party. This past Thursday Melendez called a press conference and condemned the first of the two advertisements -- the one featuring the veterans -- as "un-American, untruthful and a lie."

Will Maureen Dowd defend the "absolute moral authority" of these moms?
