Anyone else getting propaganda (Israeli) email from [email protected] or [email protected] ie "60 Min"?

I'm not, I don't know about John and others. Where do you think it's coming from? Do the Truth Dogs have your email?

This is the reply I got when I asked where he got my email, and, I asked if I should publish his email address....Nader?? Shouldnt Nader know about this??? I mean, he dosent say its Nader's opinion, but,.....he says he got it "working on a Nader cqampaign in OHio"! Ralph Nader's campaign didnt give out email addresses of supporters to have them spammed like that.

I've not gotten anymore---I posted the wierd text on the thread about Iran's satellite...I guess its not a biggie--Just thought it was wierd. They prob spammed everyone who signed a petiton or something. I'm not sure my spam/virus scan is the best. He said to post his email address "anywhere I liked"!

So, feel free to "reply", I suppose!

Yeah, complaining that the U.S. media is biased against Israel isn't exactly a classic Nader opinion.

John, now that I think about it, this is an argument Arthur Silber has made in all seriousness: based on what "experience" usually means in this context, the less, the better.

You get experience by ordering the bombing of brown people.

Yeah, I'm sure it had nothing to do with Nader.

Definitely agreed about experience: in my mind, what's considered "experience" by mainstream liberals (like those who apparently infest the Onion) is precisely what makes me not want someone in a position of power.

The Sirota story is interesting because there's been a standard narrative among some left bloggers that online libs would just fall into line behind Obama, no matter his policies. The assumption was that liberal bloggers who objected to certain Bush policies would suddenly find those same policies to be perfectly acceptable under Obama. I'm actually starting to get a little hopeful that this isn't playing out as expected. Sirota's criticism is one indication, I think what Greenwald has written since the inauguration is another, even lib sites as low-brow as Sadly No! have been forcefully critical of some Obama policy proposals, like Geithner's proposal of setting up a "bad bank" to take all the toxic Wall Street paper.

Maybe we're not in for four to eight years of, "It must be right because the Democrats are doing it!" At least I hope so.

I like the guy from the "FKN Newz", even though he sometimes seems too glib.
