CAUGHT: Obama "Anti-Smear" Website caught putting up....Smear Sites!

Another example of the notion of Obama being "beyond the old politics", via Charles Johnson:

Suddenly appearing among the Google search results for “sarah palin gay,” a web site titled: Sarah Palin Supports Gay Rights.

Sarah Palin (GOV-Alaska-Republican), supports gay rights, says Anchorage Daily News.

Quote "Gov. Sarah Palin vetoed a bill Thursday that sought to block the state from giving public employee benefits such as health insurance to same-sex couples."

Quote ""It is the Governor’s intention to work with the legislature and to give the people of Alaska an opportunity to express their wishes and intentions whether these benefits should continue," the statement from Palin’s administration said."

Coghill said he’s interested in a new plan that would allow state employees to designate one person — maybe a same-sex partner, but also possibly a family member or roommate — who would be eligible for state-paid benefits. But the employee would have to pay to add that person to his or her benefits."

Sarah Palin’s veto gave gays the same rights as married couples in Alaska.

A vote for McCain/Palin is a vote for gay marriage.

Interesting. There’s nothing else on the page. This sure looks like the work of the dastardly right-wing anti-gay attack machine, doesn’t it?

But look who’s really behind this.

In the Linux console, if you enter the following commands, you can learn the secrets of a political dirty trick. First, look up the host of ‘’ to get the site’s IP address.

host has address

Then use the same command to look up the domain name pointer of that IP address.

host domain name pointer

Well, well. “,” eh?

And what happens if you enter on your browser’s address line?

Why, you’re redirected to none other than, the official Barack Obama site that’s supposed to be defending him against smears.

Looks like they may have a second purpose: to generate a few smears of their own.

For Obama this is not about "issues" or getting beyond "old politics"; this is not someone interested in "bringing people together"--this is the same old same old, the 'Chicago Way'.

I don't know if I have ever seen in my lifetime a candidate who so often repeatedly tells outright lies about both his own positions--and about those of his opponents. The irony here, i.e. that Obama's official "anti-smear" website is actively engaged in creating smear websites to distort the views of Obama's opposition, is trumped only by the silence of big media on the campaign's serial hypocrisy and the exponentially rising count of the contradictions in Obama's own videotaped statements...

Obama is taking the art of lying to a whole new level.
