Please Don't Use This Blog To Post Made-Up Bullshit

The below got posted in the Open Blog thread.

Initially, I only read the beginning, which seemed possibly real. Then I read the rest, and it's clearly partisan made-up stuff.

I have googled phrases in this "article." The only hits returned are this site, in the comments, and forum, in which the article is reprinted and linked... back to this site.

I am making a note of this to make sure that anyone who read this knows it's fake.

And also to express annoyance. Some people seem to believe that all that is necessary to change perceptions, and thereby change reality, is to push spin, nonsense, and outright fabrications. Then we'll all believe it, and then we'll act accordingly, and the world changes due to a lie.

I'm just tired of this amateurish, and very arrogant, sort of conceit. The idea that someone is so smart their made-up crap will change the world.

It won't. And here's the proof. I'm calling this out as total bullshit. Now that I read past the first paragraph (and I only skimmed initially on a phone), I can see how dumb and amateur this attempt at fictional "news" is.

You have to be pretty smart to change things with the truth. You probably have to be even smarter to change things with a lie.

The below lie is not even halfway smart. It's dumb. Thanks for wasting people's time with an idiotic fiction.

It's laughable. What news organization writes like this? What political organization is this crass?

None of them.

What did you hope to accomplish with this? Are you planning to break any further "Morning Bulletins" here?

Because, what, you're so smart you can fool everyone?

No, you're not. Dunning-Kruger isn't just a river in Africa.

SHOCK DNC POLL PREDICTS ANOTHER “SHELLACKING”

Washington, DC -- The leak of an internal poll by the Democratic National Committee has the Obama reelection campaign staff quaking. Conducted last week with a sampling of 2,500 registered voters across a wide and statistically-even-handed spectrum of the national landscape, the poll shows that President Obama could be in for a “shellacking” come November 2012. Not only did Obama come up short against every potential Republican challenger, he scored poorly among every ethnic group with his score among blacks at an average of 68%, a relatively dismal showing considering his election with 95% of the black vote.

Perhaps equally disheartening for the DNC and Senior Advisor and 2008 campaign wunderkind David Plouffe was the President’s showing among males. After garnering 49% of the male vote in the last presidential election, the poll showed Obama down to a support level of 39%. According to a source, respondents cited a profound lack of testosterone in Obama’s policies and political outlook with some saying that if Bill Clinton was the first “black” president, Barack Obama is certainly America’s first “female” president. From his “mom jeans” to a pervasive indecisiveness to a lack of support for the traditional, once-male bastions of business and the military, Obama is widely perceived as weak. And the killing of Osama bin Laden has done little to erase this perception.

Although the media have portrayed a Republican party in disarray, respondents seem to have accepted this as a natural part of the candidate selection process. Furthermore, attacks against conservatives as racist have increasingly backfired with perhaps the strongest evidence against the racist meme being candidate Herman Cain’s win in the first Republican debate. Increasingly, Americans of all stripes are looking at sinking economic numbers and a slapdash foreign policy and coming to the conclusion that an unfavorable appraisal of the President’s record is not tied to the color if his skin.
