Michelle Malkin points out the left’s attempt to out KGB the KGB:
They’re baaaaack. It’s another legion of Obama snitch police.
The Obama 2012 campaign has rolled out “Attack Watch”.
“Get the facts. Fight the smears.” And report all dissidents and enemies here.
The announcement was made earlier today on the official BarackObama Twitter account.
“Obama launches another snitch police squad”
And guess what? An astroturf group appears out of nowhere to do this:
We wrote here and in several follow-up posts about the New York Times’s outrageous front-page smear of Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
The Times story blew up like an exploding cigar. You might think that would cause the Left to abandon it in shame, but you would be wrong. Today The Hill reported that a left-wing group has asserted ethics violations against Issa, based on the Times story. That was the plan all along, of course.

There was the October Surprise in the 90’s. The wacky conspiracy theory that Ronald Regan (as a candidate) met with Iran in the fall of 1980. to postpone the release of the hostages until close to the election. Somehow. Some theories even linked it to Iran-Contra and the CIA-Cocaine connection. Hearings were held. Congress called people to testify. The “seriousness of the charges” you see.
It was an attempt to smear their opponents. That new civility (which is the same bitchfest the left gets into whenever they lose). When it got nowhere, it was dropped.
Now they are trying to fish for things (sadly some candidates insist on helping). It’s the big lie: Republican/Tea party/Conservative/anyone we don’t like wants to (NEGATIVE IDEA HERE). Or they plot to (SCARY PLOT HERE). They are in cahoots with (RICH PEOPLE HERE). The Tea Party is the product of (FOX NEWS AND/OR RICH PEOPLE HERE) and they plan to cut (LEFTY DARLING PROGRAM HERE) .
Mix and match! Keep going until people believe it (or at least the next election).
