    be spearheaded from our local right wing radio stations.

    when the GOP comes up with a line of attack and new legislation the talking points will begin on those 1000 radio stations. the pressure and intimidation on con democrats will also happen at the local level also, to soften them up with a steady drumbeat of calls and threats to their offices from the dittohead/teabaggers. they in turn will be able to take 'pro-life' positions and cite their concerned constituencies.

    if progressive groups fighting GOP efforts continue to give those local stations a free speech free ride the GOP will again be considerably more successful than they would if progressive groups made it habit of challenging those stations with picketing and pressure on local sponsors.

    i can guarantee most of those local sponsors have never been asked why they support attacks on reproductive rights and except in reddest areas will not defend those attacks. some may ask their ad agencies to change their ad campaigns.

    those are the power centers of everything the GOP does, where they create their well-misinformed pro-corporate, anti-rights constituencies and enable the massive hypocrisy.

    Progressives will lose all major messaging battles until they picket the limbaugh/hannity megastations and boycott those stations' local sponsors.
