Trolling for trolls! Again!

They're baaaack.

With all the same code words, too: left-wing bias of the major media outlets, we'll supply the talking points, and we're counting on you to construct facts ...


What planet do these people live on? Not only are they relying on hiring penny-ante shit-disturbers, they're not even trying to hide it.

  1. It's part of the price of being popular. It must have been 6 years ago that Washington Monthly's 'Political Animal', with short essays designed to spark political onthread debate on current issues ( then written by Kevin Drum who is now at Mother Jones ), grew so desperate over the proliferation of spam, talking points, impersonation and more that they finally - editorial staff was not happy over the waste of human resources - moderated the thread.

    I find things are so crazy that some bloggers who do not have a following will still generate discouraging and critical 'commentary.' There was a blogger at WordPress I recall as being platform specific, haunting political bloggers and friends of http://chenzhen.wordpress.com/2007/05/25/wordpress-political-blogger-alliance/

  2. Assuming that this ad was real (not put up by a non Cons as a disinformation campaign), then it does lead to a question we should all be asking: how many of the multitude of polls that tell us that Harper is on the verge of a majority can be trusted (the ad does suggest that the applicant can make his/her own facts up, no)?

  3. That ad seems to be gone, but there's an ad up now for leftwing writers which appears to use mostly the same text:

  4. This is absolutely a put-on. Someone on this side making a little mischief... ;) Great prank though, I wish I'd thought of it.
