I'm looking for three people

I signed up for a free bumper sticker and got this email response. Apparently I need to find three people. Anyone?

Hi there --

Thanks for signing up to get a free sticker!

We'll be putting it in the mail as soon as we possibly can.

Help grow this campaign -- and make sure your friends are getting their free stickers, too.

Forward this link to three people now:


Thanks for being a part of the team.

Inside the war rooms plotting a battle against Hillary Clinton
Updated 04/23/2015 3:39 AM

ARLINGTON, VA. -- In a nondescript high-rise in the suburbs of Washington, a group of 20-somethings is waging war on Hillary Clinton.

They’re tracking her every move, analyzing her utterances during decades in public life and updating a library of 1,000 videos dating to the early 1980s.


America Rising isn’t alone in its work on Clinton. She faces a trio of major independent organizations, each armed with different tools but all with the same mission: Defeat her.

The groups – America Rising, Citizens United and Crossroads GPS – are expected to have more money, more staff and more ways than ever to get out their message this year than in any previous presidential race.

Washington Examiner says Hillary Clinton earns $624 MILLION per year. Because Math.

I'll be curious to see if any other right-wingnuts pick up this truly moronic bit of anti-Hillary spin. Apparently the Washington Examiner would have us believe that Hillary Clinton gives eight speeches every day, 40 hours each week, 52 weeks per year. I'm no expert on Hillary Clinton's work schedule, but this seems... Unlikely.

So dumb: "Hillary Clinton Logo turns blue like a Home Pregnancy Test"

I thought you all might appreciate this bit of conservative stupidity. I scoured the site for some indication that this might be satire, but found none...

Hillary Clinton Logo turns blue like a Home Pregnancy Test
American Thinkier, April 20, 2015
By Pedro Gonzales

Hillary Clinton's much criticized logo has changed color from red to blue.

(The old one on the left, the new is on the right.)

I think she has changed the color to better appeal to mothers. In many pregnancy tests when you urinate on a stick it turns blue when you are pregnant. Hillary wants women who do this to identify with her. She wants to relate more closely to mothers. After all, she's always talking about women and girls (boys not included).

Donald Trump shares horribly sexist tweet: 'Hillary Clinton Can't Satisfy Her Husband'

Trump Lets His Followers Know 'Hillary Clinton Can't Satisfy Her Husband'
TPM, APRIL 17, 2015

Real estate mogul Donald Trump might want to check whatever reflex makes him compulsively retweet his supporters' #Trump2016 messages.

The potential presidential hopeful on Thursday shared a fan's tweet that read "If Hillary Clinton can't satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?"

Trump deleted the tweet, but not before actor Lenny Jacobson got a screenshot of it:

Republican Milwaukee County Supervisor calls Hillary Clinton "Ovary"

You stay classy, GOP...

County supervisor defends calling Hillary Clinton 'Ovary'
Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
April 16, 2015

Did Ovary's campaign REALLY set a $2.5 BILLION goal just for her own #POTUS run? Yet SHE claims there's too much $ in politics? Sheesh #tcot



Is it really appropriate to refer to the former first lady in this way?

Alexander, a conservative on the left-leaning County Board, thinks so.

She notes that people come up with nicknames for politicians all the time. For instance, former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger was dubbed The Governator and ex-President Bill Clinton was known as Slick Willie to his critics -- and even some of his supporters.

Alexander, who is considered a possible candidate for the state Senate, said she found it interesting that people have jumped to the conclusion that she was referring to Hillary Clinton when she discussed "Ovary's campaign." She noted that Time Magazine ran a "sexist" article on the former secretary of state earlier this month by suggesting that Clinton is ready to run for president now that she's past menopause.

The Seven Positions Hillary Clinton Laid Out in Iowa

This is from today's NBC News First Read. Looks like a good list...

Campaign finance: "(We need to) get unaccountable money out of it once and for all, even if that takes a constitutional amendment."

Free community college for qualified students: "I fully support President Obama's plan to make community college free."

Expand pre-K programs to more children: "I think we have to start that in pre-kindergarten. I think we have to give more kids the chance to get ready."

Paid family leave: We are the last developed country in the world that has no national paid leave for parenting or illness."

Building on Obamacare: "I am committed to trying to, you know, build on what works in the Affordable Care Act... Part of what I'll be doing during the campaign is looking for ways that we keep what works and what's lowering costs."

Immigration reform: "We are really missing out on economic opportunity because we haven't been able to agree on comprehensive immigration reform... We are saying to all these other people who want the same dreams and the same aspiration and the same willingness to work hard just like our families did that, 'No, we're not going to … make it legal for you.'"

Make equal pay more enforceable: "Were going to, I hope, continue to push legislation that would make equal pay more enforceable."

Just for fun: The automatic DU Hillvetica text generator

Most of you probably saw the post about Hillvetica, the new font inspired by the Hillary logo.

I thought it would be fun to use the DU software to let you automatically type in Hillvetica. It's a little clunky to use, but I think that's probably okay because it's not intended for long blocks of text.

Basically, all you do is type a caret -- that up-arrow thing that looks like ^ -- followed by a capital letter. There are 26 carat/letter codes, for the 26 letters of the alphabet. Check it out...
