RE: [RLC-Action] New poll for RLC-Action
- These are all good points I thought of as well, but also... it can be seen
as mocking or satirizing the Marvel Comics character Captain America, who
has a blue mask with wings off the sides and a big white "A" on his forehead
(and other imitators who use a big white star). I really don't think that's
something we want people thinking either.

And, just to play Devil's Advocate here for a moment, what I don't quite
find attractive about the Elephant Flag is that the single star in the
middle of its forehead makes it look like a circus elephant, which might
prompt critics of the RLC to make statements like, "There's that RLC circus
elephant; there must be some RLC clowns around here somewhere." Even the
"RLC" could be abused by someone turning the "C" into "Clowns." The star
also looks like a bull's eye. Elephants are hard to bring down, but didn't
the safari hunter aim right between the eyes to bring a big bull elephant to

They have a monthly e-newsletter and send out e-mail alerts (presumably on pork projects in the works). More importantly, they maintain a database of current and past pork legislation--the Pig Book.

I don't really know anything about this group (though I've heard of them before), so it would probably be a good idea to do a little background research on them before relying on their information. Still, the Pig Book and CAGW's other resources look like good places to start.
