the threat to awol: democracy

we got an email from moveon.org with some good news: the repubbbs are scared! it said, in part:

here's what bush/cheney '04 campaign director ken mehlman had to say about us on tuesday: "moveon.org is a huge threat and has hurt the president."

just a few years ago, no one would have believed that millions of real americans, working together, could have such an effect on the political landscape. but events like our bake sales last saturday have proved them wrong. in one sunny spring afternoon, over 1,000 bake sales from seattle to syracuse pulled in $750,000 -- mostly in $2 or $3 cookie-sized chunks. [ed. note: full report here.] moveon members are re-writing the political rule book, and, together, we're evening the playing field against the wealthiest presidential campaign in our country's history.
as always, the moveon email ends with a request for a donation...though we've had our issues with some of their tactics, the staff at skippy international heartily endorses a contribution to the moveon folks.
