A very long and detailed, but quite fascinating, investigative report into possible shenanigans by the Obama camp in relation to the smearing of Gov. Sarah Palin from Dr. Rusty Shackleford at The Jawa Report.
Think Axelrod, "Astroturfing" and plausible deniability. Think supposed professional PR sewer rats with very uncreative, easily traceable pseudonyms and sockpuppets. Think about embarrassing evidence quickly disappearing from the internet immediately after the post is published. (Sorry, jerks. They made copies of everything!) Think possible campaign law violations!
Now quit thinking and just read!
