Where's Willy? Is the Zoo missing a PUMA?

Remember Will Bower, "head" of PUMA (otherwise known as Democrats Opposing Obama for McCain - DOOM)?

Some time ago I wondered if maybe PUMA, and other such groups, were a Democrat-created "False Flag" operation designed to corral the idiots and keep them from doing anything really dumb that might throw the election.

I got a rather weak response from someone claiming to be Will Bower:

"Which candidate would be more likely to do what your average Democrat would want him to do -- McCain or Obama?"

For me, Edward, it's more important to ask "What should the average Democrat want of his or her Party.

John McCain can be kept in check with the checks and balances of a Democratic Congress. However, if Obama in elected in November, anti-democratic behavior will be rewarded and enshrined within the Democratic Party.

If the Democratic Party won't uphold democratic principles, who will?

If the voters don't hold the Democratic Party accountable, who will?

I responded. He didn't respond back. Maybe he was too busy taking phone calls at DOOM central.

But where has he been, lately? He had an interview with Newsweek in January, when he was moping about the capitol during the inauguration, being the token vegetarian at the all-you-can-eat steakhouse buffet.

Will Bower, 36, walked around the Mall with millions of other Americans this morning. But unlike nearly everyone else in the crowd, Bower wasn’t cheering. He wore a Hillary Clinton T shirt (adorned with a HILLARY FOR PRESIDENT sticker) to show his support for the woman he feels the Democratic Party and a sexist media stole the election from. Bower recently left his job as an intellectual-property researcher at Thomson Reuters in order to work full time for the pro-Clinton group he cofounded, PUMA (Party Unity My Ass) ‘08. Bower, who is now living off of savings to work full time on what he calls his “labor of love,” has focused his efforts on reforming the primary system, which he says is undemocratic.

And since then... nothing.

He doesn't even have his picture up at Just Say No Deal, anymore. Some cute, semi-nude gal posing with an American flag greets us instead (so much for claims of sexism, there, folks).

So what's happened to the man who helped launch a coalition of "millions" of self-hating Democrats? Is he hard at work "reforming" the primary system, thus ensuring no one he doesn't want as President will ever get the nod ever again? Or is he being quietly reshuffled into the party, somewhere, as a payoff for having been a true believer?

Inquiring minds want to know.
