California: Crying Fire in a Crowded Democracy
In the Dr. Seuss tale, the Grinch kept pressing himself, “I must find some way to keep Christmas from coming!” Then, the Grinch “got a wonderful awful idea.”
The same thing happened last week in California. A new Grinch-of-a-group with a shadowy identity started running a radio advertisement all across the state’s many expensive media markets. The apparent goal? To keep democracy from coming.
The group calls itself Californians Against Identity Theft (CAIT) and the radio spot is about identity theft. Well … sorta. Not really, though.
