What is Netroots Nation and why should I care?

Netroots Nation is a political convention for American progressive political activists, which makes it the polar opposite of CPAC (pron SEE-pak), the Conservative Political Action Conference for American conservative activists.

Why should anyone care? Only because it’s a snark-tastic opportunity to scoff at the enemy. And you know how important Saul Alinsky said THAT is. So here I go playing a fun, if immature game of nyah nyah!

Netroots Nation was originally organized by Daily Kos, a progressive blog financed in part by billionaire George Soros. So naturally, they featured a mockumentary about how totally UnAmerican Awful it is that the billionaire Koch Brothers help finance conservative political causes.

The 2013 Netroots Nation convention had about 3,000 registered attendees. (CPAC 2013 had about 10,000.)

Seriously. Who came up with Nutroots … I mean Netroots Nation? I’m guessing the same PR morons who came up with WTF for Obama.
