Unity08 is a political party and is not a political party
Would you like to know what Unity08 is? I would, too.
“Instead of a book I bring Unity08.com, which is the website that everybody from the Colbert Nation can go to and sign up and be part of this centrist party.” — Unity08 Founder Douglas L. Bailey, June 28 2007, on The Colbert Report
“Colbert: Now, Unity08, that’s the Party?
Bailey: That’s the Party.” — Unity08 Founder Douglas L. Bailey, June 28 2007, on The Colbert Report
“Voters may only register with one party, but since we are not a political party (and have never been designated as one by anyone) delegates are free and welcome and encouraged to sign up with us no matter what party they belong to, or if they don’t belong to one at all. This is not a matter of interpretation — …” — “Unity08 Moderator,” June 12, 2007, on the Unity08 discussion boards.
Now, either Unity08 does not know what it is, or there is a Unity08 civil war, or Unity08 occupies that divine status above petty either-or distinctions like “a party” versus “not a party.”
(Tip of the hat to Kacz for bringing this to my attention.)
