ProgressNow Shows Subscribers a Dick For April Fool's Day

April Fool's Day: the most irritating holiday or undeniably the most irritating holiday? The date tends to bring out the dumbness in even the smartest people. Every once in a while, though, a prank actually produces a chuckle -- like, for instance, the one the lefties at ProgressNow pulled on the thousands of folks who receive the organization's daily news digest.

Instead of its usual subject line and banner, the e-mail update featured the attached photo of Dick Wadhams, head of Colorado's Republican Party. Beside it was a red, white and blue elephant symbol and the slogan, "From the Desk of Dick Wadhams: Undefeated since 2006."

That's one Dick ProgressNow subscribers weren't expecting to see. Not even on April Fool's Day. -- Michael Roberts
