"Though it purports to be a spontaneous uprising, AngryRenter.com is actually a product of an inside-the-Beltway conservative advocacy organization led by Dick Armey, the former House majority leader, and publishing magnate Steve Forbes, a fellow Republican. It's a fake grass-roots effort -- what politicos call an AstroTurf campaign -- that provides a window into the sleight-of-hand ways of Washington."
I love my Republican friends. And there are arguments to be made against a tax-payer funded bailout. But c'mon! This is just typical of the dirty tricks that a bunch of rich conservatives pull to make working people think they're on their side. Is it any wonder that we non-conservatives are always looking for conservative hidden agendas? It's because they're always there! And the agenda is to sell little people ideas that will enrich big people.
I don't believe arguments that "they all do it." I've never seen evidence that the progressives in this country have the lie machine -- or are even as organized, unfortunately -- as conservatives. Allright, enough rant.
