But it is Astroturf with some serious divots. It appears that videos that were once posted to YouTube claiming Sarah Palin had ties to the Alaskan Independance Party weren't quite what they seem. Rusty Shackleford has the most in depth look and news on this and Ace over at Ace of Spades has the break down in simple language we can understand.
I wonder when the NY Times or WaPo or any of those other crack news organizations are going to investigate.
By the way, while people are digging around can somebody find some stuff on BettyLu Saltzman? Who is she? She is the person credited with introducing David Axelrod, Obama's campaign manager and master of the Astroturfing, and Barack Obama. Other then a story about that and one where she convinced Barack to give a speech to an anti-war rally in 2002 in Chicago, I can find very little about her, and yet both stories I have found mention what a powerful force she is in Chicago politicial circles, especially in regards to fund raising.
