Truth, Lies, and Your Brain on Obama [someone]

Look, at this point I don't know if this is real or fake. It looks to be by the same person who wrote the famous HillBuzz comment Rush read on the air yesterday. But whatever its origin, it's riveting stuff, actually even better than that comment.

First, a little personal background… I am a female grad student in my 20’s, and a registered Democrat. During the primaries, I was a campaign worker for the Clinton candidacy. I believed in her and still do, staying all the way to the bitter end. And believe me, it was bitter. [...] As a part of his overall effort to extend an olive branch to the Clinton camp and her supporters, Obama took on a few Hillary staff members into his campaign. I was one such worker.
The post makes a number of interesting points about the campaign (and you should read the whole thing), but the most important comes near the end.
As part of my research duties, I scour right wing blogs and websites to get somewhat of a “feel” as to what is being talked about on the other side. Much of it is nonsense, but there are some exceptions which give the campaign jitters. A spirited campaign has been made to infiltrate many pro-Hillary sites and discredit them. A more disorganized, but genuine effort has also been made to sow doubts among the unapologetically right wing sites such as redstate.com. Don’t you guys get it? This has been the Obama campaign’s sole strategy from the very beginning! The only way he wins is over a dispirited, disorganized, and demobilized opposition. This is how it has been for all of his campaigns. What surprises me is that everyone has fallen for it.
(Emphasis added... For Allahpundit.) Finally, the dots are connected about the polls:
How did we skew these polls, you might ask? It all starts with the media “buzz” which has been generated over the campaign. Many stories are generated on the powerful Obama ground game, and how many new voters were registered. None of this happens by coincidence. It is all part of the poll-skewing process. This makes pollsters change their mixes to reflect these new voters and tilt the mix more towards Democratic voters. What is not mentioned or reported on is not the “under-reported cell phone users or young voters” we hear so much about. What is underreported is you.
Again, whether this is real or hoax, we damn well need to act like it's true (because it is) and get out there.

On a similar theme, HillBuzz reminds us of the psyops Axelrod tried against Hillary in the primaries and has planned for us in the next five days:

(1) Calls for McCain to just give up and quit, because the race is over.
[...]
(2) Wild claims of Obama winning states that shock and surprise you.
[...]
(3) Repeated insistance that blacks and young people will decide this election, and they are all going to vote in record numbers for Obama.
(Note that we've seen the Axelturfers already trying all three.) Read the whole thing: among the stuff I've left out is some pointed discussion of Eeyoreism.

I should mention that I'm glad this site has been one of the few big blogs where Eeyoreism hasn't gotten much of a foothold. Whether honest or not, it's totally counterproductive -- particularly in this home stretch.
