Power of the Borg-o-sphere:...

Power of the Borg-o-sphere: The law student behind In Arguendo, which is my favorite new Regrettably Anonymous Liberal-Leaning Website (which, if used as an acronym, almost spells "RALLY"), describes trying to get ahold of his Congressman -- who turns out to be that Berman guy all you people seem to hate -- to talk about that bill all you people say is horrible:

We decided to do some research, and ended up calling Congressman Berman's office. We got some lackey kind of giving us the brush, basically telling us not to worry our pretty little heads about this complex situation that the Congressman would handle for us. 'But we're constituents', we countered. The lackey was unmoved. Then we mentioned that we run a little website called In Arguendo, and within 3 seconds we were talking to Fred Flores, Communications Director for the Congressman. Mr. Flores pointed out that he was not the point man on the bill, but did provide us with the phone number and e-mail address for Alec French, who is handling this bill in Washington.

Of course, InstaHead already posted about this while I was out at the Angel game, so this is utterly repetitive for 91.2% of you. Sorry!

Oh Matt,

You know us 'RALLY' sites can never get enough attention. Thanks for the mention.
