To Prove He Is Not In The Pocket of "Big Fact"
Every day my man Chuck Todd gets up, does his celebratory "Wakey! Wakey!" happy-dance (Not Safe For Work)
and then puts some awful, lying Conservative disgrace to humanity on my Liberal teevee.
This morning it was Bill Kristol, who by any measure of cosmic justice, should be spending the rest of his miserable life in a florescent jumpsuit, beautifying America picking up broken bottles and used condoms along our nation's highways and byways.
Now given the Washington Beltway incentive structure, I have zero confidence that Chuck will ever stop being a craven, "Both Siderist" weasel of his own volition. After all, people who shout "Both Sides Don't" tend to end up cordoned off in obscure blogs while those shout "Both Sides Do... and Hippies are Probably Slightly Worse" end up in large mansions taking months off at a time for "book leave".
However there is a slim chance that bringing market forces to bear on the problem in the form of a petition informing Chuck's boss that he is really, really of pissing off her customers might make a difference.
Right now, that petition stands at +170,000 signatures.
How about we help get it to 200K?
