AttackWaaaatch Gets Results? Washington Post Edits Headline Knocking Creepy Website

AttackWaaaatch, the website whose font is Waffen Sans Serif, was covered by the Washington Post today.

As I noted earlier, the headline was:

Attack Watch, new Obama campaign site to ‘fight smears,’ becomes laughing stock of the Internet

Emphasis added. Laughingstock of the Internet.

And their headline now?

Attack Watch, new Obama campaign site to ‘fight smears,’ becomes laughing stock of Conservatives

Ah, so now it's not the laughingstock of the Internet, but merely of "conservatives."

What happened? Did AttackWaaatch's rapid-response Blitzkreig go into effect, sturming over the Washington Post's Maginot line of editorial independence?

I argued with Allah about when, or if, AttackWatch would be relaunched using some website template besides the current FuturoGoebbels.

I predicted "changed by 6pm." It looks like I'm going to lose that bet (luckily, Allah did not take the $5 action, or at least we couldn't resolve terms).

One thing I didn't think of -- right now they're telling themselves, "Oh sure, they're laughing, but they're actually talking about it, driving millions of eyes to the site via free (viral) media, where they can read our absurd claims about Perry's and Romney's 'lies' about Obama."

And actually I think that's right.

So maybe they'll change it this weekend. Or they'll see if it's still getting mocked on the internet -- ooops, I mean by conservatives -- before they actually change it.
