I know I shouldn’t take it seriously. My Mom taught me to never, ever take anything seriously when it is said by a person who voluntarily goes by the name “Vikingstar.” But here it is.
Vikingstar ponders when the hordes of liberal posters will begin showering AMG with their heresy because it is an election year. He surmises that they aren’t here yet because the Democratic machine isn’t yet paying them money to “astroturf” AMG.
If Democrats are paying anyone to post anything on AMG, we are screwed. There could not be a more stupid way to spend kindly donated money.
Does Vikingstar think the great masses of Maine come to AMG for unbiased, open discussion, and might be swayed by some planted users saying things like, “Gee, I don’t know. I kind of like Angus King,” or, “Actually I sometimes listen to MPBN and like it?”
No. No one is coming to AMG with an open mind. They come either to laugh or, thank goodness for my blog, kindly provide fodder for the people who came to laugh. There is only a slight space in between those two options, and his name is Dan Billings and he is on AMG sabbatical right now.
Seriously, how paranoid do you have to be to think Democrats want to pay people to write stuff on AMG. My goodness. But I guess compared to the recent “Democrats want to use secret sterility pills to control the world” thread, Vikingstar is being pretty tame.
These people are fricking nuts.
