Dirty Tricks Day! Obama Email Slur, Say Hello to a Fake Global Warming Site

Wow, two nasty online tricks on the same day, what a lucky bunch we are. First, check out this John Dickerson piece about a viral email that’s been nagging the Obama campaign like a bad cold. Apparently, word is spreading that Barak won’t say the Pledge of Allegiance and is hence all un-’Merican or some such, which is both untrue and a completely stupid non-issue, BUT it’s actually got enough people concerned in Iowa that the campaign has had to address it. Modern American politics: playground rumors + technology = fun for all.

Next up, take a look at this exposé of a global warming skeptic’s site that not only makes up fake scientific studies, it also fabricates the scientists and research institutions behind them. Nice work! If only Google weren’t, like, effective and stuff, you might be able to get away with it.

Update: But wait, there’s more! Take a look at Jose Antonio Vargas’s article on negative campaigning in today’s Post, via tPrez.
