Democrats vs. Disney

Democrats were looking for a new target of their hatred. They seem to have picked... Disney.

In Virginia, Democrats are thinking a little differently. Instead of going after cartoons, they're attacking a gathering of local ethnic groups, or as the Webb campaign calls them, a "Monkey Fest".

Update, Sept. 9: Robert Novak writes:

The unusual Democratic outrage over ABC-TV's "The Path to 9/11" film to be shown Sunday and Monday reflects private concern in the party that the fifth anniversary of the terrorist attack can reverse the political tide running against Republicans.

The highly partisan Rep. Louise Slaughter of New York composed a tough letter to Robert A. Iger, CEO of Walt Disney (ABC's parent company). The letter cites two scenes from the program casting doubt on the Clinton administration's legacy in fighting terrorism.
