Obama is has just created a new staff position expressly for the purpose of making him look good on-line and retaliating against anyone who dares criticize him.
Hardly new, this sort of thing has up until now been handled by political committees or supportive groups. But apparently that wasn't good enough. Now Obama wants one on the taxpayer payroll, in the White House, answerable to him and him alone.
From now on, we can expect the blogosphere to circulate pro-Obama puff pieces designed to make him look good, and scurrilous attack pieces on anyone that Obama deems a political threat. And it'll all be coordinated by Jesse Lee, Obama's personal minion and hench-boy.
When's the last time we've seen something like this? Wasn't it that Goebbels fellow?
Come to think of it, his boss tried to wipe out the Jews, too.
Hopefully conservative lawyers will look into this. This just has to be a violation of any number of campaign finance laws or laws restricting the partisan political activity of government workers. We all know that if the Bush Administration had ever done something so bold, the liberal establishment would be screaming right now. But since it's their guy doing it...
