There is a blue corner and a neutral corner in the US campaign game called Fight the Smears. Barack Obama has an official site www.fightingthesmears.com:
Does he have a birth certificate?
Is he patriotic? Sometimes the “truth” is as troubling as the rumour.
Judge for yourself.
An apparently independent Kevin Martin aka Xclusive stands guard at www.fightingthesmears.org:
But what it all boils down to. Is I’m a man that is sick of the way the country is being run into the ground. Both the Republicans and Democrats need to take responsibility for all that has gone wrong. But we know that won’t happen as they will lose their all powerful seats in government. It’s up to us the American people to get this country back on track. It’s not going to be easy but we can do it.He takes a swing at smears to both sides, for example John McCain wife beating joke. Couldn’t bring myself to click on Fun Stuff. Presume it's not X-rated by Xclusive.
It reminds me of the time a Year 8 class at Katherine High School in the Northern Territory were researching government using the internet. One student who chose the US asked for suggestions so I directed him to www.whitehouse.com. Before long he called me over asking if I was sure about the site. When I glanced at the screen it turned out to have pornographic content as well as politics. It was the blue corner!
As a sign of the times the porn has been dropped leaving just US politics. It’s mostly “Man in the Street” vox pops. The latest interview is a woman! The president’s website was www.whitehouse.gov. In George W’s case it’s open to question which site was more obscene.
For more satire you can also try www.whitehouse.net that presents itself as the “Officious Website of President George W. Bush”. It has posts such as President Bush Holds Fruitful Meeting With All-New, Refreshingly Submissive Ruler of Insufferably Snotty Frogs
