136. Amazing thread. So damned proud to have seen it!
Here's a brief profile of Kaloogian:
Howard Kaloogian
From SourceWatch

Howard Kaloogian is an attorney and estate planner who served as a Republican member of the California State Assembly between 1994 and 2000. In 2003, he launched the Defend Reagan Committee which organized a grassroots campaign to convince the CBS television network to drop the planned broadcast of the miniseries, "The Reagans."

Kaloogian, along with GOP political consultant Sal Russo, strategist David Gilliard, San Francisco radio host Melanie Morgan, and former Newt Gingrich and Enron pollster Frank Luntz, secured funding and political support for California's October 2003 gubernatorial recall election, in which movie actor Arnold Schwarzenegger unseated Democratic incumbent Gray Davis. Kaloogian had backed Republican State Senator Tom McClintock over Schwarzenegger in the race.

In June 2004, he was one of the founders of the pro-troop, non-profit organization, Move America Forward, which achieved notoriety for its campaigns to lobby movie theatres to not show Michael Moore's documentary film, "Fahrenheit 9/11." The group made national headlines for its support of John Bolton's nomination to serve as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and also for organizing the "You Don't Speak For Me, Cindy" tour which brought thousands of supporters of the U.S. military to Crawford, Texas to counter the anti-war efforts of Cindy Sheehan.

Kaloogian unsuccessfully ran as a Republican aspirant in the primaries for the U.S. Senate in the 2004 election, coming in 3rd in a crowded GOP field.
