This just strikes me as pathetic (and I know I am going to get flamed for this):
Virtual March for Real Health Care Reform
Sign up to join the march
When you sign up, we’ll prepare faxes in your name and send them to your senators on the day of the march (click to view the fax we’ll send.) We’ll also send you reminder to call your senators. We will send you updates on this and other important campaigns by email.
No wonder we are losing to the teabaggers. They drive hundreds of miles and stand in inclement weather to voice their displeasure, give the news media lots of film to show on the nightly news, and do it over and over and over again complete with signs and a real presence (even if they lie about the actual numbers). We’re going to have a “virtual march.” We’ll deluge some poor unpaid jackass intern with strongly worded faxes!
We can’t even be bothered to get off our asses and march. Go slacktivism! Is there a facebook group for me to join, too? Will there be magnets for my car?
And don’t get me wrong, at least MoveOn is doing SOMETHING. And for the record, I blame the administration for some of this. Just WTF are they doing with OFA? Saving it for something really important, like Blanche Lincoln’s re-election effort?
