In unity there is fatuity

By Mike Flugennock on Sunday March 15, 2009 07:11 PM

Where is the American left while all this hell is breaking loose?

Why, they're helping lay astroturf for Barack Obama! Read on to find out more about the massive Kool-Aid party being organized to boost the Obama Agenda -- and presumably, the Obama approval rating, which has apparently sunk to something more appropriate to normal objective reality:

A broad coalition of left-leaning groups is quietly closing ranks into a new coalition, "Unity '09," aimed at helping President Barack Obama push his agenda through Congress.

Conceived at a New York meeting before the November election, two Democrats familiar with the planning said, Unity '09 will draw together money and grassroots organizations to pressure lawmakers in their home states to back White House legislation and other progressive causes.

The online-based MoveOn.org is a central player in the nascent organization, but other groups involved in planning Unity '09 span a broad spectrum of interests, from the American Civil Liberties Union to the National Council of La Raza to Planned Parenthood, as well as labor unions and environmental groups.

The group is still in its early stages, and its organizers have adopted a secretive posture: Several of the people involved did not respond to emails over the last two days, even though one of them, former MoveOn executive director Eli Pariser, has programmed his MoveOn email account to assure correspondents that he is using the account for messages "including Unity '09 work."

Given the nausea this story induces, your cartoon carries rather a double meaning...


"a broad spectrum of interests, from the American Civil Liberties Union to the National Council of La Raza to Planned Parenthood, as well as ."
dues rake unions
and great green fuss fluster-ers....

a veritable noah's ark

noah played by
no one less then
'parisrer is burning'

massguys and massgals
all left handed imps
out there on at
america's street level
sink this stink of an ark !!!!


The realm of "Spectacle" is great and powerful, and Moveon should be applauded for rising so quickly in it.

I don't know how many other Stop Me readers live in or around DC, but if you have, you've certainly noticed the smarmy MoveOn ads in the subway cars. Including a foto of some stereotypical Liberal/Pwogwessive type holding a little sign reading "So'n'Sos For Obama To (Some Pwogwessive shit)" and made up to look like a checklist of some kind, they usually have items like:

_End Global Warming
_Band Practice
_Peace In Iraq
_Some Other Crap

...and they're just begging to be graffiti-subverted by a quick-moving, Sharpie-packing bastard with a vicious sense of humor. );^> (who, me?) To wit:

_End Global Warming
_Bail Out Wall Street
_Escalate Afghan War
_Tax Healthcare Benefits
_Get Chumped By Democrats

Oh, and I've got a great new slogan/tagline for them, too. How's this:

MoveOn: Nothing To See Here.

Thankyuh, thankyuhvurymuch.


Very funny, Mike! Who're ya gonna call? Hope-Busters!
