Obama Astroturfing Twitter

So it appears the Netroots netroots are showing?.

The Other McCain: Finally, at least one Republican is getting tech-savvy:
A Texas Republican on Monday said President Obama’s gun control campaign is a fraud based on fake messages over Twitter.
Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) accused Obama of trying to make support for his position look stronger than it really is by flooding Twitter with messages from people who don’t exist. . . .
Stockman said that in response to Obama’s call for people to tweet their congressman in support of gun control legislation, he received just 16 tweets. But he said all of these messages were identical, and that a closer look at them revealed that only six were from real people.

“The other 10 are fake, computer-generated spambots,” his office said in a press release. As evidence, he said these 10 tweets use default graphics and names, and have not engaged in any interaction with other people. Two of the tweets were sent at nearly the same time, and both follow just one person: Brad Schenck, Obama’s former digital strategist.

Is anyone at all shocked by this, after all they don't call Obama's right hand man the King of Astroturf for nothing.

2 Im sure after the revolution, that there will be an internet poll about the method of obamas state execution (assuming hes not already beaten to death by a mob) and how long it should take (ie- the 'short rope' where the criminal strangles to death slowly - kind of like what that commie is doing to our country).

All on TV of course, the american people gotta know their enemy is actually dead.
