I guess the Coffee Party astroturf didn’t achieve its goal.
So one of the people who helped build the Center for American Progress, creator of Think Progress, has created a new movement, hitting upon a slogan which really expresses their profound stupidity and childishness, as reported by Ben Smith:
… the Agenda Project, a new, progressive group with roots in New York’s fundraising scene and a goal of strengthening the progressive movement, has launched the “F.*.c.k. Tea project,” which is aimed, the group’s founder Erica Payne wrote in an email this morning, “to dismiss the Tea Party and promote the progressive cause.” …
Payne, a veteran consultant to progressive groups, is a co-founder of the Democracy Alliance, the low-profile group of liberal mega-donors who helped create build the Center for American Progress and other new organizations that grew in the Bush years.
I’m not sure this was the best slogan. Suggestions?
