Snitch #7: The man at the top
While this administration has thus far had a few notable 'press conferences'/'town halls' which had questions which seemed more than a little fishy (Huffington Post question on Iran, Gates arrest question at healthcare press-conference, etc)... for the most part they've been ignored by the wider media.
Today we had another such event... and like both of the cases I mentioned above, their was a fair bit if fishiness to go along with it when one digs into names and details... which is the subject of my latest snitch to the White House:

I believe I have tracked down further information on the previously reported “Senator” Obama... I have reason to believe that he may just have become our Dear Leader... though as yet it seems he has not been able to purge the records of his past, something that is quite unfortunate.
During today’s town hall, our Dear Leader took a question from young Julia Hall from Malden, MA... only her presentation seemed... fishy and further investigation by persons opposed to healthcare reform indicates that Julia is the tougher of one Kathleen Manning Hall, someone who donated nearly $2000 to the glorious campaign of Dear Leader during 2007 and 2008... as well as the firm she worked for donating more than $12,000 to Democrats in 2008 and not a dollar to Republicans.
Don’t believe me? Let’s look at the photos. Who is that woman sitting next to the questioner? Does she not have more than a passing resemblance to the woman standing next to the president on Ms Hall’s Facebook page?
Smell or not, this cannot stand! Our Dear Leader must set the record clear that these photos and donations were to “Senator” Obama, a man who no longer exists and never really did. That he distances himself from those donations and those times and that this question was the work of Julia Hall who did not know she was going to be called on until she was.
It is funny though... this is not the first time we’ve had a softball question at a press-conference/town hall that stunk of being a plant... surly our Dear Leader is so powerful that he can handle a hundred fast-balls at once... only why does he not take them all on at once, instead of playing things down? Does he fear that we will tremble in fear of his awesome batting abilities? Or is it something else? If so... I pray that we never learn it, that that, like the healthcare debate and speaking without a teleprompter... could destroy his presidency.
Once may be an accident... twice indicates poor judgment... three times though... ~7 months in and we've got such a clear pattern? At this rate I guess we can can count on another 18 or so planted questions before his first term is up. Happy hunting (for plants)!
