McCain’s Internet Outreach Plan: SPAM America!

UPDATE: As pointed out by RedGreen below, McCain’s campaign is cutting and pasting their cut and paste internet strategy from two months ago!

As made well know by the troll mitchturb:

The McCain campaign has rolled out their internet game plan today (notice the date mitchturd’s profile was created) which entails the sole use of SPAM!

On McCain’s Web site, visitors are invited to “Spread the Word” about the presumptive Republican nominee by sending campaign-supplied comments to blogs and Web sites under the visitor’s screen name. The site offers sample comments (“John McCain has a comprehensive economic plan . . .”) and a list of dozens of suggested destinations, conveniently broken down into “conservative,” “liberal,” “moderate” and “other” categories. Just cut and paste.

You’ve got to hand it to the McSamer’s not falling to far from the tree and holding true to their candidate’s ways of simply “cutting and pasting” the policies they’re told to adhere to, as McSame has with Bush.

    It’s not as if there are any potential McCain voters at democrats.com or atrios.blogspot.com.

    Are they just trying to give their people something to do to keep them busy?

      They don’t understand blogs or the internet (progressive in nature). Their first reaction, as any good conservative, is to misinform and create chaos. This is their ideology in action on the internet.

    figured this out two months ago:

    Looking to catch up to opponent Barack Obama’s precedent-setting command of internet campaign organizing, GOP nominee John McCain has put together a sophisticated online outreach system of his own. And dear readers, we’re pleased to report you’re at the tip of the shillin’ spear:

    Quite so, listed among such worthwhile shilling destinations as Crooks and Liars, DailyKos, MyDD, and Think Progress, McCain campaign loyalists have been shown the way to our happy home–complete with talking points and some kind of point-based reward system. And once again the alphabet is kind to us, check out that top billing.

    Now, some of our readers will be (this is a bit of an understatement) eager to discuss the issues of the day with all of our new friends from the McCain campaign. Others may have their personal issues with the whole business of shilling for a candidate as some kind of organized dealy-o. We don’t. We want to be clear that we welcome you all, being in this for the pageviews at the end of the day.

    Answer anyone once or twice. But if it becomes clear they are just a talking point reguritation machine – we ignore them. No matter what they say, just ignore them.

    That will get rid of them quicker than anything. And it will frustrate the hell out of them too 🙂

      Im board with that suggestion David.

      though I kinda miss The Blonde lately. He had a certain style.

      Did you notice, though, mitch dialed back the talking points (not entirely) and started engaging in some real give-and-take in the Musgrave thread today. Any of us might have come on a little strong the first day we posted, it’s worth allowing newcomers to get their legs.

    I’m thinking the same thing about “sjintheknow”. It definately confuses a debate and wastes time answering them. I’ll ignore them also.
