MICHELLE OBAMA’S MIRROR
Big Guy’s former political reelection arm, Organizing For America, has morphed into “Organizing for Action.” It’s still “OFA” so they can keep the cool logo!
Now, you might think that this “executive arm of the invisible government,” (h/t Cajun) sounds like a partisan liberal Democratic propaganda organization, butt I assure you it’s not. If it were, it would not be eligible for tax exempt status as a non-profit organization under section 501(c)(4) of the IRS code. As such, they are not allowed to promote any political party, platform or candidate in the pursuit of manipulating public opinion.
With that in mind, OFA recently launched a new solicitation page to gather your stories about Gun Violence.
I understand next week they’re adding a page to solicit stories from average Americans about how they are personally going to suffer when the sequestration cuts the services of first responders like policemen, fireman, EMS and IRS agents.
In order to allow you to become part of the manipulation of public opinion, they’ve provided this helpful propaganda graphic for you to pass on to everybody you know via your social networks: “Share this graphic so your friends know what’s at stake.”
So hands down, OFA would easily win the “Top Moron of the Week” award if they were eligible.
Butt since we follow the rules around here, and only actual people are eligible for this award, let’s get right to this week’s real nominees:
- Joey Biden, always in the running for this award, for his advice to Dr. Jill:
“I said, ‘Jill, if there’s ever a problem, just walk out on the balcony here, walk out and put that double-barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house,’”
Not because it’s illegal, butt because after firing “two blasts” into the air from her double barrel shotgun, Dr. Jill will now be defenseless against her intruder. This seems odd advice from a man whose “IQ is higher than yours,” butt not inconsistent with a guy who struggled to hold a 1.98 GPA.
