I have to be honest, in 2003-2004, I was a big supporter of moveon.org. But in the last two years, I’ve moved on from moveon.
Besides selling, or giving, my name to every on-line liberal organization, they’ve been as effective as the DNC and the democratic run congress. ….which is, of course, to say they haven’t been effective at all. Now they just clog my email box with endless crap about things they say they are attempting or whines about the GOP.
They need to focus – considering ‘we’ have the house and senate and the White House is a bunch of lame birds of some species and/or genus – or their attempts at changing the political landscape are slim.
But I haven’t quite been able to ‘unsubscribe’ myself from their emails, as it is a presidential election year. I know – it makes no sense, but what if I end up missing something???
The other day I got to take the Bush/McCain quiz. They claim over 300,000 folks had already taken it – and that was with the email I got! So, are they beta-testing this thing on other moveon members before it finally became my turn? Maybe it goes by donor $$$ or something.
Play if you’d like. I got 4 out of 5. Story of my life.
