Today in our inbox we found the following email:
"Sorry to write anonymously but if I revealed my name I would be dead. I just wanted to tip you off that what you've written about LGF and other right-of-center blogs getting their marching orders from the Republican spin machine is true. I contribute to one of the bigger blogs out there and I'm sickened to see that my fellow contributors are willing to take their cue from some faceless party apparatchik instead of writing whatever the damn hell they please about whichever damn issue they please. Every day we get a memo with two or three talking points to write about and you can bet your bottom dollar that those issues will appear on blogs like ours and LGF. Even if our contributors have personal misgivings about negative campaigning and some of the more racist stuff coming out of the Republican camp, not posting something would mean having our loyalty questioned. So even though we know that half of the stuff we post about Obama is a lie, even though we know McCain won't win, and even though we've frankly got better things to do than rewrite (for free!) what the GOP wants us to, we do it anyway. Someone's going to blow the whistle on this after the election, but for now prepare for a nasty fight..."
Of course we have no idea if this email is genuine, especially as it came with a fake name. Still, interesting, especially in view of the concerted Palin/LGF effort to smear Obama with the terrorism stigma today.
