What I do is called speaking truth to power.
What Erick Erickson of RedState.com does is called speaking lies for rich people.
The not so very bright readers of Kos want to send Martha Coakley and me to jail.
Well, I published the list of union organized phone banks for Coakley on Friday night.
Some genius who probably thinks Joe Stalin was just misunderstood now is convinced I must go to jail. WITH A POLL!!!!
I assume s/he (that covers everything including transgendered I hope) also wants to send Martha Coakley to jail. She did the same thing I did, but offered up even more details, including the phone numbers of the locations and email address of the contact person.
By the way, points off to the Koskidz for misspelling my name.
Them's fighting words.
More below the fold.
For a refresher, dkos blogger pinback found that RedState (was) trying to jam Coakley phone banks, and I questioned the legality of those actions yesterday. Erick Erickson, mature adult that he pretends to be, decided to respond. Bad move.
Now, back to tearing em a new one.
That's it, Erick, don't even bother to explain to your readers that you might be, maybe, encouraging them to break a little Federal Law or two. It's okay, they were bad laws, right mister professional lawyer Erick Erickson.
Erick Erickson is a shitty liar AND has a little bit of an ego problem. From his post this morning, Erick is clearly playing stupid. It must be easy for him, but it's easier for anyone who is paying attention to see right through.
And taking it to Stalin on sentence four, that's classic bait and switch right there. Of course, anyone who might question the legality of another person's actions must be a Stalin apologist. That's rich coming from a guy who is advocating disrupting the Democratic process.
It isn't illegal for the Coakley campaign to publish their own phone banking information, Erick, and I doubt you are that stupid, but you would love to make it seem that way when you state that Kossacks want you AND Coakley to go to jail. First off, really no one says they WANT you to go to jail for the sake of going to jail, I think what is being expressed here is that if you broke the law you should suffer the consequences, as some think you may have by directing people to disrupt the phonebanking operations of other Americans. (Real Patriotic stuff there, by the way.)
I know that since you are a Conservative lawyer ideas like consequences for breaking the law is likely to be a foreign concept for you. Too bad ignorance of the law is no excuse.
No, Coakley has the right to publish her own phone banking info, but you may not have the right to direct people to disrupt it. One can argue Brandenburg or other legal rulings, and should, because you may well have broken the law, Erick Erickson. But you couldn't give a shit about that. With lawyers like Erick Erickson, who needs criminals!
And a POLL! Ye Gods! Man the castle!
Oh, and dear, Erick, my middle name is Eric, and I fucking refuse to share it with you. I mis-spell names as a sign of disrespect, just like when someone disrespects other Americans and their Constitutional right to organize politically. I don't go knocking Dick Armey's dick out of your mouth while you are working, don't fuck with me when I am working. You can't handle the Truth. Hell, you fear it.
