MoveOn.Org Protests …. WHOOPS!


When rabid liberal protect goes awry.

MoveOn.Org in their political haste to protest the office of U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Brighton forgot one minor and what turned out to be important tidbit of information. They were all set to protest Representative Rogers because of his ties to embattled House Majority Leader Tom Delay.

The one thing they forgot … THEY HAD THE WRONG MIKE ROGERS.


The group came armed with financial records from a Web site that detailed various financial contributions between the two Republicans, including a $20,000 campaign contribution from DeLay to Rogers as well as a $5,000 contribution by Rogers to DeLay’s legal defense fund.

However, the Mike Rogers involved was not the Michigan congressman, but rather Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Ala.

What made it even better was the following:

It’s unfortunate that they made an error,” said Bill Rittenberg, a protest organizer.

Democrat Bob Alexander, who ran against Michigan’s Rogers in 2004, also participated in the event.

“It’s unfortunate that we had this inaccuracy,” Alexander said. “We didn’t attempt to mislead anyone.”

Yes, we at MoveOn.Org do not try to mislead we’re just to stupid and lazy to check the facts ourselves.

I like Lorie’s take on it from PoliPundit.

I mean, all those white, Christian, Republican men do look alike, don’t they? One Congressman Rogers is from Michigan and the other from Alabama. So close. Anyone could have made the mistake. I really feel sorry for the huge crowd of twenty protesters that showed up.

Yeah Lorie, all 20 of them. You see one monolithic Republican named Rogers, you’ve seen them all. I guess not.

      Oh now that is funny…not only do they protest for idiotic reasons…but they can’t even get that right! It is like a suicide bomber who only blows himself up. Not only is he a suicide bomber, but he is a failure too!
