    call progressives out, or not, I am somewhat perplexed at the criticism. After all, didn't OFA start running ads in a number of Blue Dog districts a few weeks ago.  (And of course, OFA is organizing in those districts and so is "everyone" else including HCAN, unions, etc.  At the president's request, I might add.) Seriously, I'm pretty smart and I don't get it.

      moved during the weeks that the ads have run, so they've proved ineffective, and it would be stupid to keep running them, both from a resources point of view and a tactical one.

      And some of the ads accuse Blue Dogs of taking bribes.  I'm surprised that Kossacks would be surprised that the WH wouldn't be pleased about ads accusing party members of taking bribes.  And I dont' think such an ad would be effective anyway, as it's just as likely to cause the target to retrench his current position as to change it; maybe even more so.
