i didn't do it!

The clever kids at MoveOn.org have started a PR stunt to get W to take a closer look at the source of the Valerie Plame leak.

The stunt? They're asking loads of random liberal folk to sign their affadavit stating none of us were responsible for the leak.

And I've been checking out a bunch of places like Smart Mobs that talk about ways to use technology to form politically-motivated mass action (such as the flash mob idea, where people instantly gather to protest and then instantly disperse).

You may find these things silly, and they are. They're the tools of both people who care deeply about issues and people who are mostly concerned about protesting everything. But. This is how change happens - through humor, organization, and massive numbers of people all doing something slightly off the wall.
