MoveOn targets Blanche Lincoln 

MoveOn has begun its Holy War against Blanche Lincoln in earnest:

Dear MoveOn member,

...One of the worst Democratic Senators, Blanche Lincoln from Arkansas, is now facing a very serious primary challenge from Lieutenant Governor Bill Halter.

In less than 24 hours since his campaign announcement, grassroots progressives from across the country have already raised over $600,000 for Halter. If we can hit $1 million this week, we'll have a great shot of replacing Sen. Lincoln—and we'll send shock waves through the rest of the conservative Democrats in Congress.  To reach that goal, we'll need 187 donations from MoveOn members in Washington. Can you chip in $5?

You'd almost think there's a civil war going on within the Democratic Party, but the mainstream media only finds that story interesting when it has to do with Republicans.
