Ads like this one are popping up around Craigslist--the progressives are actively recruiting to "counter the hysteria and lies of Glenn Beck and other talking heads." 

A group aptly named Grassroots Campaigns is calling on progressives to "get organized and get activated" by offering them a $24,000 salary in exchange for "work for progress."



According to the job posting, Grassroots Campaigns is "immediately hiring in Boston as well as the following locations: CA, CO, DC, IL, MA, MN, NY, OH, OR, PA, TX, WA."

The job posting also notes past and current clients of Grassroots Campaigns, including Amnesty International, the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, the Democratic National Committee, MoveOn.org and the Center for American Progress.  Clearly a bunch of winners.

...And yet the people showing up at town hall meetings and tea party rallies were considered the "astroturf" movement?
