Jim Treacher hulks out

Treacher discovers Kos spreading an Obama campaign slogan -- "Jesus was a community organizer. Pilate was a governor" -- and goes totally berserk. About time.

I guess I shouldn't have been surprised by Ezra Klein's assertion that criticism of "community organizers" is racist. Any criticism of Obama is racist. The very fact that you would even think of criticizing Obama is racist.

Let's extend the logic a bit further, shall we? Obama went to Harvard Law School; Hillary went to Yale Law School; therefore, all Yale alumni are racist. But since George W. Bush is a Yale alumni, you already knew that, right?

  1. I think Kos provides the cover, posting the astroturf first, and then the full-on astroturfing occurs throughout dozens (hundreds?) of blog comments. Trying to make it look like it happened spontaneously. That's how I'd do it, anyway, if I was an underhanded sociopath who looked like something that crawled out of Peter Lorre's ass.

    Hey, did you hear Palin is the new Eagleton? Obama/Biden '08!!!
