Give Me Money!

You may think I'm some douchey sell-out to the Pentagon propaganda machine, but I need money to spruce up my truck (it needs some kickass neon mudflaps...and some racing stripes). There's an interesting article in Wired where military college types consider secretly hiring bloggers to conduct information ops.

"Hiring a block of bloggers to verbally attack a specific person or promote a specific message may be worth considering," write the report's co-authors, James Kinniburgh and Dororthy Denning.

Shit, I'll say whatever! Actually no, this is probably the dumbest idea I have heard in awhile. Don't they understand that this will threaten the credibility of the entire blogosphere and ultimately make the military look bad?

Oh, pshaw, you don't have a truck. And, anyway, did it say how MUCH money? Maybe you could GET a truck!!

(Couldn't they just take out an ad? Or go play on My Space?)

Yes Ma'am I drive a truck (a city boy truck though, a Ford Ranger). haha, the intellectual elite of Myspace, that'd be good credibility (not that I'm a snob or anything).
