Angry old coots: More to come

Posted By on Tue, Nov 24, 2009 at 8:38 AM

Those angry old men who've been pounding U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder for endorsing health reform legislation are coming back in a $2 million ad campaign from the 60 Plus Association against U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln and other senators who deigned to allow debate on health legislation. It'll promote the falsehood that Medicare coverage is jeopardized by health reform.

Just so you'll know: The 60 Plus Association is a front group for the pharmaceutical industry, has ties to a right-wing direct mail out fit, finances Republican candidates and is otherwise a steaming sack of sleaze.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
