fredthompsonforum.com and Ron Paul

current mood: annoyed

If any of you have surveyed GOP straw polls online, you've probably noticed the now notorious trend of Ron Paul supporters spamming these polls to try to make his base seem bigger than it really is. (An amusing incident in this regard was on the May 20 Pajamas Media poll, in which Paul was removed for having less than 0.5% support nationwide, even though he had earned 38.4% in the poll they ran the previous week.)

Anyway, Frank J. over at IMAO seems to have blown the cover on the Fred Thompson "fan site", fredthompsonforum.com, as actually being a front for Paul's base, designed to lure serious Fred supporters into their camp.

I hate this sort of thing. Even if Fred wasn't the target... this reflects extremely poorly on Paul in my opinion.

I wouldn't want to be Ron Paul right about now. After all, we all know the gruesome results of being on the business end of Fred Thompson's Angry Stare of Doom.

Squirming and spamming

See Fred squirm.

Squirm, Fred, squirm.

Seeing that Fred is still in 1st place on most of the polls, it looks like his WELL-ORGANIZED SPAM SQUAD is still spamming furiously.

Spam, Fred, spam.

Whether Fred's spammers will turnout to be voters remains to be seen.

I was so thrilled to be able to make just one post without the jerk corps showing up. Well, that was short-lived.

I suppose I'll go disable anonymous posting now. Hopefully I won't have to make this an entirely closed community.
