Here’s a fun little story for you. Barack Obama has hired on an Internet team to intimidate bloggers who don’t kiss his ass. To think I’d pegged this guy as someone to vote for. Had discussed him positively with my husband and adult kids, had mentioned him somewhere in this blog as being a possible step in the right direction for the country.
Of course, that was before I found out ex-Weathermen were funding his campaign, that he has the single most leftist voting record in the Senate, and that he’s sponsored a bill to fingerprint all mortgage lenders, treating them like criminals. (Does innocent until PROVEN guilty still mean anything to anyone in this country)?
And now this. Sure, the article says the team is just going to combat rumors. So what I want to know is, are they going to combat rumors while wearing a uniform—that is, are they going to identify themselves. Or are they going to cheat, to pretend to just be regular readers of the blogs they attack?
And let’s see how long it takes them to expand their mission, to start going after anyone who suggests Obama might not be the Promised One, might just be another scumbag politician, might in fact be the biggest scumbag running this year (and considering the field, that’s digging pretty deep).
After I discovered Obama was just another crapmeister (thus making the field a perfect three-for-three), I wasn’t sure I was going to waste my time with a vote for President this year. Now I might have to, just to vote against him.
