Conversations with congressional aids make it exceptionally clear that Public Knowledge, Move-On, The E.F.F., the blogger community, People For The American Way, et al, have brought these particular issues home hard on The Hill. In fact, our fearless-leadership had never seen anything like the way these two controversial agendas got pounded:
"We're trying to retrench. We got completely flooded." says an anonymous Capital Hill source. "We've seen public support for issues before, but these two items swamped us this week. We've never had so many calls, e-mails, faxes, and... damn. You know what I mean?"
I guess that says it all.
Give yourselves a welcome (but temporary... Grin) pat on the back.
Its a new day--and the The POLs are going to learn how to handle today's version of the peaceful march on Washington.
