"Just Tell Them...
I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Team Sarah, The Confluence .... Astroturfing Thugs Play Where-ever ...
By now, many of you have read about the recent framing attempt at Team Sarah. You know, the way the Obots infiltrated the site in order to stir up sh** and make Team Sarah look bad. Thankfully, Team Sarah has been on top of that situation! Bill Collier acted quickly to inform us all not to engage the interlopers. Many of us have, since, been especially aware... in the chat room. And we've outed a few in the forum as well.
The same blogger boiz that mess with Team Sarah ... are messing with the Weblog Awards. Here is an example of what they are doing to sister PUMA site Confluence .
FACT: Operatives within the Democratic Party, with leadership by Axelrod and Dean, have developed a sophisticated system of "netroots" that "mess with" the blogosphere. They are taught how to "astroturf" as we have seen them do, time and again. They know how to rig polls, as was done with TIME's "Person of the Year." And is now being done with The Blogger Awards.
The point of my posting this is.... we need to stick together! It is not "Conservatives against Liberals anymore. It is a very small segment of the blogosphere that interferes with our important work ... to return democracy and order to our elections and governance. In the words of Bill Collier, "It is thugs against civilization."
We can all learn from each other... and, more importantly, we can defend one another from the astroturfing hi-jinx. Please visit the Weblog Awards page and boost *LEGITIMATE* blogs. Wonkette, obviously, is not one of them. As it is engaging astroturfers to falsely elevate it's numbers.
1)Let's just say that Taggles (of The Confluence) is pissed. She is taking on The Obot State of Mind and standing with Team Sarah!
2) Washington Times is on the Team Sarah story HERE
