Obama astroturfing expose

UPDATED & BUMPED (AGAIN): Ace and Dan Riehl find the smear artist has deleted his YouTube accounts -- evidence of what criminologists call "conciousness of guilt."

Michelle Malkin has a thorough roundup. More coverage at Hot Air, Jim Treacher, Gateway Pundit, and Powerline. Who's not covering it? Well, the left side of the blogosphere is oddly silent, and so far the MSM has managed to ignore the exposure of Obama's fake grassroots.

UPDATED & BUMPED: Here it is! Rusty links an Obama-connected PR firm to this video pushing the bogus claim that Sarah Palin was a member of the Alaska Independence Party:

The "convention welcome" clip you see in the video is actually something Palin recorded as part of her ceremonial duties as governor, rather than an endorsement of the party. Rusty explains it all, and produces a large amount of evidence to suggest that this is part of an extensive smear campaign launched by Team Obama, at a time when polls showed Palin boosting the GOP ticket.


UPDATE II: Took about an hour from the time Rusty put up his post until the YouTube video was deleted. "Crisis management"!

PREVIOUSLY: Ace is hinting at something kind of big. It does seem like a lot of "coincidences" keep helping Axelrod's candidate. I can't wait to see the big scoop.
