Another fundraising email from Eli Pariser. At this rate, they will be able to afford a lot of discounted New York Times ads:
The U.S. Senate just told you to sit down and be quiet when they passed a Republican amendment condemning MoveOn.

e spending time cracking down on a newspaper ad?

Its part of a larger campaign by Fox, the right-wing echo chamber, and Republicans like John McCain (who said we should be “thrown out of the country”).
“Thrown out of the country” might be going a bit far. They took care of that one guy with just four cops and a taser, didn they? (Just kidding!)
