Love or hate her, she's still making all the servers melt.
The astro turfing of Sarah.
Astro turfing is manufactured hoopla on the internet to fake "spontaneous, grassroots behavior" about certain people, places things or events. Mostly derogatory, inflammatory and/or outright lies to smear, defame or slander some one. The JR has the scoop about
a subdivision of one of the largest public relations firms in the world most likely started and promulgated rumors about Sarah Palin that were known to be false. These rumors were spread in a surreptitious manner to avoid exposure.
It is also likely that the PR firm was paid by outside sources to run the smear campaign. While not conclusive, evidence suggests a link to the Barack Obama campaign.
The 'Professional News' big boys duped (again or still?) by Palin Rape Kit Circus Lie.
With very little variation from one media source to the next, media accounts attempted to portray Palin as a callous monster out to re-abuse victims.
The best evidence available indicates these are entirely false claims.
Palinmania: 60,000 turn out for event in Florida?
Eh, maybe only half that much - to be conservative. Of course.
GWB pulled 15,000 four years ago. Biden's recent Fla. draw? 2,000.
Next up to be stricken with a scorching case of Palinmania? Bono. Click the image to watch (video).
Palin on Ahmadinejad: ‘He Must Be Stopped’
The speech that never was. Why? The Left's famous 'tolerance & open mindedness'.
She was dis-invited after Democrats threatened the tax exempt status of the Jewish groups who organized the anti-Iran rally if they didn’t disinvite her...
A great analysis of the "Palin Effect."
Her enemies are bellowing like a wounded moose.
McCain picked Palin for a number of reasons--youth, pizzazz, energy, appeal to the base and to middle-class women, to the West and to blue-collar voters--but it may turn out that the main contribution she makes to his effort is in goading the Democrats into spasms of self-defeating and entirely lunatic rage. Somehow, every element of her life--the dual offense of being a beauty-queen and hunter; the Down syndrome baby who wasn't aborted; the teenage daughter about to get married, whose baby also wasn't aborted; the non-metrosexual husband working the nightshift; the very fact of five children--touched a nerve on the liberal template, and sent the whole beast into convulsions, opening an intriguing and somewhat frightening window onto the turbulent id of the left.
Hate is apparently a television value. SNL continues its race to the bottom:
“You know he’s doing those daughters. I mean, come on. It’s Alaska.”
How about you? Got any good Palin links? Post 'em here.
