7. Want some really interesting information about the pro-war group?
This is an e-mail I got today, it's too good not to share.

VACAVILLE, Calif. (AP) A caravan proclaiming support for U.S. troops began a tour through California on Monday and stopped in the hometown of Cindy Sheehan, the anti-war mother who gained national prominence during a vigil outside President Bushs Texas ranch.

Conservative activists and military families embarked on a tour they are calling You dont speak for me, Cindy! and are planning rallies in several California cities before heading to Crawford, Texas.

Vacaville was among several stops for the caravan, which is being sponsored by Move America Forward, a Bay Area-based group. Other rallies Monday were scheduled in San Francisco, Sacramento, Fresno and Bakersfield.

When the MAF website first went up this take a look at who is was registered to:

The .com address was first registered using this information:

Registrant:
Russo Marsh & Rogers
770 L Street, #950
Sacramento, CA 95814
US

Thats right, this genuine act of patriotism is brought to you by the Republican public relations firm Russo Marsh and Rogers. The Move America Forward organization isnt just based in the Bay Area, its based in the same offices as the Russo PR firm. Same receptionist answers calls for both organizations. Website was registered to the firm until they figured out that it wouldnt look good if people knew that a PR firm was behind this patriotic grassroots activist group.

The President muffs it big time when he refuses to meet with the mother of a dead American soldier because hes too busy on his vacation and then Republicans follow that up by going and getting this PR firm to sponsor a caravan to denounce her.

Aside from bad politics thats just disgustingly loathsome behavior.
