We were going to run this ad, written by Digby and put together by Jason at The Seminal, in Baron Hill's district. Fortunately, we don't have to, since Hill switched his vote on the SCHIP override after our calls into the district, intense pressure from local constituents, and being leaned on by the House leadership.
Pressure, real pressure, works. Hill felt it. And now Jim Marshall, in Georgia's eighth district, is feeling it. The Georgia blogs are aflame; at Tondee's Tavern, they are pointing out that Marshall has earned the primary challenge(s) he's getting.
From the betrayal of Lamont to the FISA capitulation (and upcoming FISA capitulation) to the failure to move net neutrality or end the war, Democratic leaders and Bush Dog Democrats have created a toxic relationship with activists, one full of bad faith, mistrust, and outright dishonest condescension. Now we're saying enough.
