Team Obama and 2012 paranoia
I’m sure it seemed like a grand idea to the Obamaton that came up with the idea for AttackWatch.com, @AttackWatch and using the hashtag #AttackWatch, when it was implemented on 9/12/11. Yes. It really is done by Team Obama.
As Brian Koenig says, it “models sites like Politifact and FactCheck.org, but with a little more spin and a hell of a lot more slant.” In the two days it’s been in existence, six (6) tweets have been posted from it. By contrast, a search of “attackwatch” on Twitter will blow your search results up with a plethora of constantly updating ridicule for this paranoid idea.
You can file @AttackWatch away in the #Fail folder. Right about now, I suspect that the brainchild of this @AttackWatch fiasco is cowering in a dark corner in something very similar to the fetal position.
