Sen. Blanche Lincoln sent out a news alert last week about problems with Senate phone lines that seemed to be interfering with call reception. I didn't report it. Stuff happens, for one thing. For another, my guess was that orchestrated astrotruf campaigns on the health bill were to blame for overloads.
But I should have mentioned the notice. Because now I'm receiving form e-mails complaining that Sen. Lincoln has turned her phones off.
Here's one e-mail generation tool, from the Koch boys' Americans for Prosperity (for billionaires).
The lying liars will stop at nothing in their bullying.
