You Break It, You Buy It

The Online Insurgency: MoveOn has become a force to be reckoned with

They signed up 500,000 supporters with an Internet petition -- but Bill Clinton still got impeached. They organized 6,000 candlelight vigils worldwide -- but the U.S. still invaded Iraq. They raised $60 million from 500,000 donors to air countless ads and get out the vote in the battle-ground states -- but George Bush still whupped John Kerry. A gambler with a string of bets this bad might call it a night. But just keeps doubling down.

WASHINGTON - Liberal powerhouse MoveOn has a message for the "professional election losers" who run the Democratic Party: "We bought it, we own it, we're going to take it back."

A scathing e-mail from the head of MoveOn's political action committee to the group's supporters on Thursday targets outgoing Democratic National Committee (news - web sites) chairman Terry McAuliffe as a tool of corporate donors who alienated both traditional and progressive Democrats.

"For years, the party has been led by elite Washington insiders who are closer to corporate lobbyists than they are to the Democratic base," said the e-mail from MoveOn PAC's Eli Pariser.

All except one of my topics has been deleted from the Kos archive after asking why one post was censored. It sure looks like Democrats are enemies of differing opinions

So, enough with this ;) Of course, I'm good for trolling The Daily Kos for some shameless promotion of this blog. I predict some entertaining comments having to do with sucking O'reilly's dick. Though I'll warn in advance - the last person to suck Bill O'reilly's dick was a fledging bitter liberal with a knack for asking for cash the morning after.

Tomorrow we'll try and equate the internment of 150,000 Japanese civilians to 600 Arab militants. I'm giving you a head start because you'll need it...
