    winger and grass roots organizing. Their idea of grass roots is angry Tea Party rallies with lots of astroturf funding. They can try to go door to door with little iPhone scripts and complex databases. But, the trouble is, the right wingers perceive people who do that is crunchy granola hippies. So, it doesn't go over well with their voting base. When they try to talk to people outside their bubble, they are not accustomed to talking with people who have other viewpoints in a civil tone. I've actually seen right wingers try to do door to door canvassing. It was pretty creepy (They were more or less following me and group of people who were also out canvassing). But, the difference was they seemed to immediately start getting into arguments and insult hurling shouting matches with the people they are trying to convince. They just don't get it: Their problem is the message, not the medium.

    Just doing my part to piss off right wing nuts, one smart ass comment at a time.
