From The Jawa Report…
Our research suggests that a subdivision of one of the largest public relations firms in the world most likely started and promulgated rumors about Sarah Palin that were known to be false. These rumors were spread in a surreptitious manner to avoid exposure.
It is also likely that the PR firm was paid by outside sources to run the smear campaign. While not conclusive, evidence suggests a link to the Barack Obama campaign.
The Obama camp hired a PR firm to concoct those tall tales? Say it ain’t so! It is so disappointing to learn the “left wing fringe” isn’t to blame, er, responsible. Have those folks just been twiddling their thumbs waiting for nice juicy bits to fall in their laps? Are they too lazy and unimaginative to come with with smears themselves? Well, be that as it may, at least give them credit for spreading those rumors. They’ve done a bang up job of that.
Anyway, kudos to Rusty at The Jawa Report for intrepid and thorough investigative reporting, just the way it ought to be done.
