We’re here, we’re marshmallows and we don’t want any more of that stuff we don’t like

I’m sure you’ve heard of the Coffee Party — an astroturfical answer to the Tea Parties. Organized by Facebook page and as as spontaneous as you’d expect (though I don’t think this one is a professional job; it’s just too lame).

Yeah, tens of thousands of people can march in dozens of cities over months, and the media never hoid of them. Thirty liberals get together in somebody’s basement, and the New York Times is all over it.

Anyhow, in a fit of laudible silliness, Zombie has started a FB page for the Cocoa Party.

We are 100% weedroots. No astroturf Obama-campaigning former New York Times employees in the Cocoa Movement, no sirree! No grassroots racist fascist redneck Neanderthal Teabaggers either! And no hyper-partisan strategists calling the shots in this movement. We are a spontaneous and collective expression of our desire to forge a culture of ludicrous propaganda that is entirely blame-oriented.

People are having fun with it — and you can, too!

Also note that Stoaty Weasel has a FB account. I don’t know why you’d want to friend it; I never update it. I got it to keep company with the Twitter account I never use.
