MoveOn.org Blasts Senator Claire McCaskill for "Repeating Republican Talking Points"

The group is sending out emails today to its Missouri members urging them to phone Sen. Claire McCaskill with the message: "stop repeating Republican talking points about clean energy."
According to MoveOn's email, McCaskill has stated recently on Twitter and radio that President Barack Obama's clean-energy bill is bad for the economy. Meanwhile, MoveOn.org argues that clean energy is the solution for Missouri's economy, not the problem.
The proposed legislation aside, what's most interesting about this (at least to the outside observer) is that McCaskill was one of the first Democrats on a national stage to endorse Obama and has remained a steadfast supporter.
Now to be called out like this by MoveOn.org? Seems pretty ruthless. But then, guess that's why they call it politics.
