Bleeding Heartland: Some thoughts on Repealthesmokingban.org

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

William Meyers is obviously passionate about politics and willing to
spend lots of time volunteering for political causes, which is
commendable. But I am hard-pressed to think of any activist who has
applied himself in a more self-defeating and counter-productive way
than Meyers. First he declared himself an independent candidate for
Congress after losing the fourth district primary--a move I still
think he will regret someday. Now I learn from Iowa Independent that
Meyers has launched a new website against Iowa's smoking ban. I spent
a little time on repealthesmokingban.org. The "leaders" page lists
Meyers as the founder and online coordinator of
Repealthesmokingban.org and former Republican State Senator George
Eichhorn as the attorney representing bar and restaurant owners who
are fighting the ban.
