Move On Needs to Move Over!

I dont know how you folks feel. But I am getting pretty tired of move on and their watered down progressive facade. Recently, they had the audacity to send out a preelection poll in Florida. In the poll, they described Sen. Nelson (D) as a progressive candidate. He is running against the queen of the peacocks, Katherine Harris (R).

Now, I know Katherine Harris could scare the living breath out of even Tammy Faye Baker should you approach this festooned creature without warning. But to call Nelson a progressive. Maybe progressive as in progressively getting worse, proggressively moving the Democrat party further toward political irrelevence.

The reason they are calling him progressive, to fool democrats that fancy themselves progressive into supporting him.

So now Move On sends me another email. They are asking me to call Nelson and ask him to vote yes on the Truth in Media bill. Now why would I have to call a progressive to urge them to do the right thing.

Do me a favor Move On, start including your contact info. I would like to call to discuss real support of progressive candidates. But your emails never have any way to contact you. I can figure out how to send you money. Is it just progressive dollars and votes you are fishing for, or will you eventually be interested in hearing real progressive voices and supporting real progressive candidates.

The more I know about Move On, the happier I am that I am a Green.

One of the funniest things about Moveon is the money they have donated to Faux-Democrat Robert Byrd for his re-election next year. I wonder if all those people donating money to them know where some of their money is going.

Also, about annoying spammers like the one above, you can change something in your settings that can avoid that crap from happening.

echo,

It's not just Moveon. Visiting The Nation's website recently gave me the heaves. They were going gaga over Mark Warner, outgoing Democratic governor of Virginia, because he is very popular and his successor Tim Kaine just won the election. Warner thinks that pro-war, pro-"Patriot" Act, pro-Likud, pro-tax cut John Kerry was too left, and that the Democrats need to do much more to appeal to moderate voters.

I can understand the Democratic Leadership Council's Blueprint magazine doing puff pieces on Warner, but The Nation?!? That's not tyring to reform the Democratic Party instead of building the Green Party; that's just victory for the Democratic Party at all costs.
