Neocon Astroturf Groups — One Size Fits All
A lot of people wear several different hats at their jobs, especially now with so many harried employees doing the work of their downsized former coworkers.
And now we have a rightwing Astroturf organization that’s doing the same thing. The Committee for the Liberation of Iraq was formed early in Dumbya’s presidency for the purpose of — you guessed it — drumming up support for invading Iraq.
That group has disbanded; Mission Accomplished and all that. But now — same office, same warmongering chickenhawk fucks — the members of the Committee for the Liberation of Iraq have turned around, put on different hats, turned around again and said “Hi. We’re the Emergency Committee For Israel."
Old neocons never die; they just morph into another group of demented sickfucks. How about a game of Whack-A-Neocon?
Both of these “grass roots” “patriotic” groups are located at 918 Pennsylvania Ave. SE, Washington, D.C. 20003. And this office happens to be the location of Orion Strategies, a rightwing public relations firm owned by Randy Scheunemann. And speaking of people wearing different hats — this is kind of funny — one of Randy Scheunemann’s other assignments is:

Ready? Randy Scheunemann is Sarah Palin’s personal foreign policy trainer.
Talk about an uphill battle. Which of the following jobs do you think is more challenging:
Peewee Herman’s bodybuilding coach; or
Sarah Palin’s personal foreign policy trainer?
