CAUGHT: Obama "Anti-Smear" Website caught putting up....Smear Sites!
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'.
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."Sarah Palin’s veto gave gays the same rights as married couples in Alaska.
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."
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 ‘sarahpalingayrights.com’ to get the site’s IP address.
sarahpalingayrights.com has address 220.127.116.11
Then use the same command to look up the domain name pointer of that IP address.
18.104.22.168.in-addr.arpa domain name pointer obamadefense.com
Well, well. “Obamadefense.com,” eh?
And what happens if you enter obamadefense.com on your browser’s address line?
Why, you’re redirected to none other than FightTheSmears.com, 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.
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.
