Just received an email from “–Nita, Carrie, Wes, Steven, and the rest of the team” at MoveOn.org asking me to help them get the word out to all Connecticutians that Joe has got to go–that “he can’t be reasoned with. Most of all, Joe Lieberman can’t be allowed to stay in the U.S. Senate.”
“It’s outrageous,” they fume. “Joe Lieberman is single-handedly blocking our best chance at strong health care reform in years!”
I think they might have meant “best chance at strong big government power grab in years.” Whatever it is they desperately pine for, the message is consistent from MoveOn—anyone who crosses their path will be attacked mercilessly with a campaign funded by hundreds of thousands of $5 donations from MoveOn’s army of misguided hipsters and do-gooders.
The height of folly would be to misunderestimate MoveOn. According to the warm and fuzzy little email, “In less than 24 hours MoveOn members have donated an astounding $650,000 to send Lieberman home for good. That’s awesome—thank you!”
Can you donate $5 today?
