Yes, yes, it's low-hanging fruit, but it's still educational. Here's Blogging Tory and foul-mouthed screech harpy "Dodo," pretty much creaming herself in her Peter MacKay long johns:
Matt Bramanti of the LoneStarTimes reports that:
I was reading the Chron’s piece about Sheila Jackson Lee’s town hall, when something caught my eye:
One supporter, Dr. Roxana Mayer, a physician who does not live in Jackson Lee’s district praised the reform plan for overhauling a broken system.“I don’t know what there is in the bill that creates such panic,” she said
I’m not sure why, but something didn’t smell right. So my colleagues and I did a little digging, and wouldn’t you know it? Roxana Mayer is, like, totally not a doctor
But she is an Obama campaign volunteer
...and that was not the end of the trickery, not by a long mile. Finding this nugget has made my day. Sometimes you happen to click on a commenter's link and it will take you to all sort of myriad places. This was one such link that a commenter gave to an article I was reading. It's a fascinating read as it brings to light how dirty and devious the lefties happen to be.
Oh, noez!!11!11! Concerned citizen misrepresentation!11!!11!1! Gosh, that sounds an awful lot like, well, this:
A leaked memo sent by an oil industry group reveals a plan to create astroturf rallies at which industry employees posing as "citizens" will urge Congress to oppose climate change legislation.
The memo -- sent by the American Petroleum Institute and obtained by Greenpeace, which sent it to reporters -- urges oil companies to recruit their employees for events that will "put a human face on the impacts of unsound energy policy," and will urge senators to "avoid the mistakes embodied in the House climate bill."
API tells TPMmuckraker that the campaign is being funded by a coalition of corporate and conservative groups that includes the anti-health-care-reform group 60 Plus, FreedomWorks, and Grover Norquist's Americans For Tax Reform.
The memo, signed by API president Jack Gerard, asks recipients to give API "the name of one central coordinator for your company's involvement in the rallies."
And it warns: "Please treat this information as sensitive ... we don't want critics to know our game plan."
I need more of a challenge. Seriously.
