No Right-wing Conspiracy?

Well, then what do you call an organized campaign meant to flood the Internet with the same “Letter to the Editor”? The Inquirer seems to have uncovered a Republican campaign which, using the same article “written” by different authors, is being used to hijack Google search results and, because of the lack of borders on the Internet, this canned article has made its way onto international news sites. I guess that if you repeat a message often enough, it becomes true, right? Maybe they should stop sending out articles about how great Bush’s economic stimulus package has helped the US economy in favor of articles which “prove” there were weapons of mass-destruction in Iraq. Or articles “proving” that Iraq isn’t about to turn into another Viet Nam.
