    Heard on KCBS 740 AM news (CBS network radio) this morning:

    Torture memo creator John Yoo spoke at a Tea Party rally in (not sure where, somewhere in area code 925 if I'm not mistaken) on Sunday.  

    When interviewed by the reporter for KCBS, he said that he supports the candidates Whitman, Fiorina, and (someone running for attorney general from San Diego if I recall correctly).

    This is news we can use!

    We need to run ads immediately, that say Torturer Yoo supports these candidates: what does that tell you about their morals?

    •  This should be used by every Dem, (2+ / 0-)

      everywhere. This is who will run the country (again) if Reps get control of government. Anyone who has the stomach to share a political party with the Torturer in Chief is no moderate, no centrist, no decent human being. Running as a Republican these days means pro-torture. Period.

      BTW, here's confirmation of Yoo's appearance.

      where people can't name the members of SCOTUS, the Speaker of the House, the Majority Leader, etc. etc., I doubt many even know who John Yoo is.

        We can teach them who John Yoo is.  

        For example with ads that direct the viewers how to stand in "stress positions" for the duration of the program they are watching.

        For example with graphic pictures from Iraq and elsewhere.

        For example with clips of past presidents, yes including Reagan, speaking out against torture.  

        Lots of ways to make Yoo so famous he has to carry three more pens in his pocket to sign all the autographs from people who come up to him with copies of 1984 and The Gulag Archipelago and ask him to sign.  

        That would make a damn good protest tactic the next time he speaks.  Bring your copy of Orwell or Solzhenitsyn and ask for his autograph.  

        This tactic brought to you by the Department of Gray Ops.
