It's a rare flower that blooms only during election years!

Over at The Corner, Jonah Goldberg alerts us that Momsense Returns:
The Baltimore Sun has the first indication that a particularly stupid media schtick is returning: The movement of the apolitical Moms. The headline should raise the hairs on the back of your neck:
In a grassroots movement, moms of all political persuasions organize to oust Bush.
The story flatly contradicts this, as does common sense.
Tell tale giveaway:
Tom Seibert, former ambassador to Sweden under President Clinton, Democratic fund-raiser and an Annapolis resident, stands to one side and introduces himself at this event as "Debbie's husband." His wife is one of the founders of the group.
Wink, wink. Nudge, nudge. Can it be long before they trot out the obligatory homeless blossoms?

UPDATE: Someone woke up and retitled the puff piece: "Moms with a goal: unseat Bush".
