Cannonfire's unity pony is on back order

Why we fight.

Can't disagree with the history lesson, though, as an extremely tepid Obama voter, I'm not sure I agree with his prescriptions for action.

However, Cannom makes an excellent point on The Obama 527 Formerly Known as Kos: They've got a bigger audience than your average cable weasel, so the fact that the OFB captured it, and then purged their enemies from it, was a strategic win for the Obama campaign.

Hey, and just for old time's sake, here's the sig I used at Kos before they banned me. Like the old Stan Mack’s Real Life Funnies, “All dialog guaranteed verbatim:

OFB PROPHLACTIC Yes, I am paid by the Hillary campaign. Yes, I hope to get a job in Hillary’s administration. Yes, I am a shill. Yes, I am a hack. Yes, I am a liar. Yes, I am a racist. Yes, I am a purist. Yes, I am a troll. Yes, I am ignorant. Yes, I hate Obama. Yes, I ignore all facts that don’t square with my [lying|racist|purist|shilling|hackish|trollish] preconceptions of Obama. Yes, my reading comprehension is poor. Yes, I have a hidden agenda: I hope that the Democrats lose, and to that end I support [not Obama]. Yes, I could be older than you. Yes, I think all young people are stupid. Did I mention I’m a shill and a hack? Good. Anything else?

And in fact, I'm not bitter. I am, however, still angry. So, I've heard all the ways there are to say "Shut The Fuck Up" already...

i'm not sure what to make of this post other than it is long and disjointed. but there are some interesting tidbits there. it fits with joseph's piece and with this:

"so the fact that the OFB captured it, and then purged their enemies from it, was a strategic win for the Obama campaign."

the dean plan.

Needs to get on the record, though a timeline with some link analysis would be better....

UPDATE Also, I looked at the RezkoWatch story, which reads well, but is deficient in linky goodness. The essential "obscure study" seems prescient, but is nowhere cited. Any way to straighten out the sourcing?

can't speak for the provenance but here is what shows up after bird-dogging a google citation using the words from the rezkowatch cite:

obama attack on free speech mechanisms

big problem is i can't readily tell who did this.
