Send in the Trolls

McCain’s Monkeys

From the McCain website:

“Select from the numerous web, blog and news sites listed here, go there, and make your opinions supporting John McCain known. Once you’ve commented on a post, video or news story, report the details of your comment by clicking the button below. After your comments are verified, you will be awarded points through the McCain Online Action Center.”

It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if The Stephen Harper Party tried something similar in the next election campaign, if they’re not doing so already. Far-fetched? Well, seeing as the McCain campaign is already using this practice to spread their message, I’d have to say not. Couldn’t possibly happen in Canada you say? How naïve.
