@Notas Badoff RE: "non-partisan" groups.
Hmm, yes. I just love that expression. The way these groups use it reminds me strongly of a certain type one sometimes is unfortunate enough to run into in your local pub. You know, the type that prefaces his remarks with "I'm not political but...." and you just know that you are about to be subjected to an uber right-wing rant of a type that makes the average Daily Heil editorial sound positively liberal by comparison..
