44. His story line that OFA was 'testing' was patroniizing, excuse-making bullshit. He wasn't patient...

He was respectful, because being slammed by the most respected journalist on TV today is something he'd better address. There was no patience about it.

As for Burton's fake-ass explanation, OFA has ALREADY tested its entire operation through the last four years of online so-called 'activism.' If, after they've gotten criticized for not being more than electronically activist -- if after they've collected four years of suggestions by email recipients about what they could DO better -- they want to take their show on the road, to announce it on a Friday -- to a youthful demographic, of all groups -- really is pretty stupid.

Rachael is totally right. We'll see just what kind of action Burton takes OFA through at state levels where the real battles are being waged right now.
