Remember back in the Democratic primaries of 2008 when Rush Limbaugh urged his millions of listeners to vote in Democratic primaries for Hillary Clinton to keep the nomination race going?
If imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, the kooks at Daily Kos are paying tribute to Limbaugh by copying his tactics.
Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas has launched a campaign to make life difficult for Mitt Romney, by encouraging Democrats to vote for Rick Santorum in open primary and caucus states.
Moulitsas argues that the longer the primary drags on, the better it's getting for Democrats -- noting that Rick Santorum will inevitably follow the path of Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich and see his poll numbers fall.
It's a no-brainer! The following states have completely open contests coming up:
2/28: Michigan (Primary)
3/6: North Dakota (caucus)
3/6: Tennessee (primary)
3/6: Vermont (primary)
If you live in one of those states, pledge to participate in Operation Hilarity by voting or caucusing for Rick Santorum.
Moulitsas is also raising money to place a Facebook ad to promote his campaign.
Limbaugh's "Operation Chaos" was deemed a success in some states. I wonder if the liberals will have the same kind of impact?
