The San Francisco Chronicle’s Joe Garofoli is providing a helpful public service for angry, anti-Prop. 8 demonstrators looking for companionship. He’s just published hook-up instructions from “progressive techies” on how to locate the nearest protest (hat tip: JWF):

For those not in San Francisco or LA to celebrate/mourn Tuesday’s Prop 8 ruling, the progressive techies over at CREDO Mobile offer a way to find the nearest pro-same sex marriage rally by using SMS.

Here’s how: “Just text in the word RALLY along with your zip code to our CREDO shortcode: 27336 (it spells out CREDO on a non-smartphone).”

The CREDOers walk us through it:

1. Go to “compose SMS”

2. Key in the shortcode 27336 where you would normally put a phone number.

3. Type in the following to the message area:rally 91102

4.If live in Fresno and you text that we’ll SMS you the following info:

Prop 8 Rally in Fresno [email protected] Meet at Fresno City Hall, 2600 Fresno Street. Questions: [email protected] -CREDO Mobile & Courage Campaign

If you live in Bakersfield and you text rally 93306 into 27336 you find out there are actually three rallies:

Prop 8 Rally in Bakersfield [email protected] 3 locations: Mall View & Mt. Vernon, OR Outback Steakhouse Stockdale Hwy, OR Rosedale and Coffee. Questions: [email protected]

Nope, the paper did NOT provide similar services for Tea Party activists. But Garofoli — an Anderson Cooper wannabe, apparently — provided plenty of derisive commentary about “teabagging.”

Bias? What liberal bias?
