... is that the far left trolls it much like they troll discussion forums.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"><span style='font-size: 11pt'>The Democratic National Committee's Organizing for America has quietly launched an initiative aimed at making Obama supporters' voices heard on the largely conservative airwaves.</span>

"The fate of health reform has been a focus of debate in living rooms and offices, on TV and online — and on talk radio. And since millions of folks turn to talk radio as a trusted source of news and opinions, we need to make sure OFA supporters are calling in with a pro-reform message," says the introduction to the online tool.

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>The online tool presents users with a radio show discussing political topics, to which supporters can listen live, and the phone number for that station, for when health care comes up. It also offers tips for callers and talking points on the issue.</span>

My quick sampling produced Christian radio, a local talk station in Buffalo, and the syndicated talk shows of Dr. Laura Schlessinger and Sean Hannity — who will no doubt be thrilled with their new, liberal callers.

Supporters are then encouraged to report back on their encounters.

TechPresident's Nancy Scola writes that the program is a product of a new push inside the organization to develop new software tools to give supporters "achievable, tangible tasks to do that fit into the nooks and crannies of their day to day lives." </div></div>

Spoon fed talking point #1:

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">It's outrageous that Rep. Joe Barton, the top Republican on the committee overseeing the oil spill and its aftermath, delivered a personal apology to BP -- and that other Republicans echoed his call.</div></div>

Spoon fed talking point #2:

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">BP has a responsibility to those whose lives and livelihoods have been devastated by the oil spill. The $20 billion fund is a major victory for the people of the Gulf and a big step toward helping families and businesses get back on their feet and recover from this disaster.</div></div>

Spoon fed talking point #3:

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Rep. Joe Barton and Republicans like him don’t understand that the real tragedy is what’s happening to the people in the Gulf Coast. Instead they are big oil's strongest allies, receiving thousands of dollars in campaign donations from the oil and gas industry. Barton himself has received more than $100,000 from industry this cycle.</div></div>

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">While the Administration continues holding BP’s feet to the fire and oversees efforts to counter the oil spill, the President has said Democrats and Republicans must come together to pass comprehensive energy legislation that ensures this kind of environmental crisis never happens again.</div></div>

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Barton should apologize to the people of the Gulf and he should step down as the highest-ranking Republican on the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

The dreaded seminar caller.

Rush has his boot on their throat.

With a recored of 0-928 against Rush, it is incomprehensible why they continue to attack him head on.

It's like watching a gnat trying to do a head butt to the Rock of Gibraltar.

I guess you're trying to deflect from the recent revelation that talk radio companies supply ACTORS for scripted call ins that are friendly to their right-wing hosts' positions, right?

No, but I was waiting for someone to bring up this spoon fed lie.

Now, are you aware that the company actually books callers for the comedy stunts on these "MORNING ZOO" shows and has denounced this "TRUTH" as the lie that it is.

But, sadly, that won't matter.

The far left across the land is already nodding their collectivist heads in Pavlovian unison waiting for the next spoon fed "TRUTH" delivery.
