I told you about Ellie Light earlier. More info about Ellie Light: The latest count is at least 62 publications in 29 states and the District of Columbia; national publications and a Yahoo link; and 2 foreign publications. For an extremely wealthy woman (she lives in homes all across the country, and in places the uber-wealthy do not live) to send email from Saudi Arabia (22.214.171.124) to Ed Morissey defending her uber-rich self is, well, rich. Everyone who believes she is a real person who lives everywhere, say “aye.” Those who say Ellie Light is a leftist, pro-Obama astroturfer (or group of astroturfers), say “nay.”
In the opinion of the Chair, the Nays have it.
But wait, there’s more!
Mark Spivey doesn’t appear to be quite as wealthy as Ellie Light. He appears in fewer newspapers with fewer addresses, but with the same pro-Obama letters. But you cannot deny his prodigious letter-writing campaign from his various homes.
Or he’s another astroturf pro-Obama name.
Don’t buy just yet! We have even more to make this deal even sweeter!
Gloria Elle and Jan Chen wrote identical pro-Obama, anti-Republican articles while on opposite sides of the country.
But that’s not all!
Jen Park and Lars Deerman wrote identical, word-for-word pro-Obama articles in diferent news outlets.
Not only that but you get them all interconnected by their various different letters being published at the same time in different news outlets!
How much would you pay for this astroturf? You don’t have to water it! Unlike grass, which needs watering for its roots to spread and create more grass, this astroturf is very low maintenance! And since it is fake grass, it won’t fade, guaranteed!
([Cass] Sunstein advocates that the Government’s stealth infiltration should be accomplished by sending covert agents into “chat rooms, online social networks, or even real-space groups.” He also proposes that the Government make secret payments to so-called “independent” credible voices to bolster the Government’s messaging (on the ground that those who don’t believe government sources will be more inclined to listen to those who appear independent while secretly acting on behalf of the Government.)
Those of you who thought Glenn Beck was wrong about Cass Sunstein, are you ready to change your minds yet? Those of you who want to blast Conservatives, are you yet ready to admit there is an agenda of corruption and lies in the Obama/liberal/socialist/Marxist crowd in the US?
