Radical Rally-ers!

On Facebook.


The ReformaTories are lashing out at a Facebook group, Canadians Rallying to Unseat Stephen Harper, or CRUSH.
The CBC-bashing continues unabated as Tory strategists uncover more revelations of so-called Liberal bias at the network.

Mary Pynenberg, the viewer who inspired a recent poll on women in politics, is not only a former Liberal candidate but is also a “radical anti-Stephen Harper group,” according to the latest internal Tory talking points. Oh, and she has donated $14,000 since 2004 to the Liberal Party.


The latest is that Ms. Pynenburg is also the vice-president of the National Women’s Liberal Commission and “a proud member of Canadians Rallying to Unseat Stephen Harper (CRUSH), a radical anti-Stephen Harper group,” the Tory missive says.

Of course, we CRUSHers are chortling over it.

And last week, as promised, I sent CRUSH another donation. I took it outta my MASSIVE tax refund, which was very satisfying. ReformaTories aren't going to spend my dough on self-congratulatory advertising. Instead, I get to spend some on advertising intended to help bring them down.

If you haven't heard about CRUSH, go check them out. I think it's a fascinating experiment in multi-partisan grassroots activism.

Isn't it nice to know CRUSH is being noticed? If they're willing to call the group *radical* in national press, CRUSH must be doing something right.

But really, talk about your money's worth of driveby smear in one sentence. They did everything but call her a card carrying member of that "left-wing fringe group" W.O.M.E.N.

Time to flog the t-shirts on the free publicity

CRUSH - a 'radical anti-Stephen Harper group'.

Och, no, we're much too mainstream, much too moderate to fit that description.

All in all, radical sounds so much better, so much more honest than "zealot"

How exciting to now being known as radical. I just thought I was a stay-at-home mom.
