Bush 43 Faux Astroturf Campaign

I remember when I used to eagerly flip the pages" of the daily newspaper simply to read the letters to the editor. It used to be fun to read, full of generally intelligent discourse on matters the paper had reported on though sometimes the rants and comic takes would stretch to metaphoric hyperbole. But no more. Over time, that part of the paper became increasingly reserved for overly simplistic bromides, jingoistic monosyllabic blurbs, and occasionally an inane retort to a previous day's letter to the editor entry. But's now it's sunk even lower, serving as a host for the Republican National Committee's propaganda server, dishing out it's latest maniacal machinations.

The Google cache doesn't lie here. The same exact 130 word letter promoting Bush 43's tax cut scheme was printed by dozens of nationwide hometown newspapers. Shame on Chuck and Leah Williams, Nick Koszykowsi, David Bednarski, Sherry Collins, Stephanie Johnson, John Pinckney, Trevor Carlson and all the others who abdicated their freedom of thought in a pathetic sham. Well, if those are truly authentic names -- it could be just be a piece of work by the Republican Machine, churning out Republi-Bots to disseminate mindless indoctrination via seasoned blurb bits.

You too can be a GOP Team Leader...

I guess with his approval rating sinking, Bush 43 and team are reaching deep into online Republican activist toolbox kit...
