Fuck that.

When I read their handbook I was astonished how much it paralleled the DNC platform. They might pay lip service to bipartisanship, but their roster and their donors list (Soros, Ford Foundation etc) makes it pretty clear that they're centrist liberals. "Climate Change" vs. Occupy Wall Street. "Touring green" vs. corporate control of the music industry and Washington DC.

While I resent their half-baked agenda presenting itself as "activism" it's definitely their right to promote whatever kind of propaganda they want: we all do it.

Just the same, this gesture at token bipartisanship is pretty hollow. They should have the courage of their own convictions.
