McCain Campaign: Rewarding Internet Trolls

I know how I get and you get when right wing spammers attack our comments with illogical and ridiculous notions spewed forth by the right wing noise machine. Well it's getting even worse. In desperation John McCain's campaign has a plan to reward trolls and spammers when they attack progressive and truth telling blogs:
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.
I find it despicable. But if you want to fight fire with fire, check out UnfitMcCain.com. I found some real doozies in this article: Songbird McCain's real POW record where I learned about all his Code Of Conduct violations while he was a prisoner in Vietnam. Here's a clip to quote when you're barraged with pro-McCain spam and trolls:
Consider the following narrative published on a Web site maintained by the nonpartisan organization, U.S. Veterans Dispatch:
  • In 1996, McCain encountered a group of POW/MIA family members outside a Senate hearing room. The family members were some of the same who worked tirelessly during the VietnamWar to make sure Hanoi released all U.S. POWs, including McCain.

  • He immediately began quarreling with the POW/MIA family members, who were eager to question him on the issue of what happened to their loved ones.

  • Instead showing courtesy and appropriate compassion by answeringtheir questions, the Arizona senator pushed through the group, shoving them out of his way, nearly toppling the wheelchair of POW/MIA mother Jane Duke Gaylor. Her son, Charles Duke, a civilian worker in Vietnam, is among 2,300 American POWs and MIAs still unaccounted for by the communists.

  • The POW/MIA families, shocked at McCain’s overly aggressive behavior toward Mrs. Gaylor, registered complaints with Senate officials.
Heartless bastard.
