McCainiacs To Be Unleashed in the Blogosphere

McCain's campaign people have the not-so-brilliant plan of utilizing a "point system" for bloggers who drop lame talking points on political blogs. This shameless sock puppet campaign will no doubt clutter up the blogosphere with sanitized and packaged comments about McCain's plan for the economy (yawn). From the McCain website (h/t Malkin):

Select from the numerous web, blog and news sites listed here, go there, and make your opinions supporting John McCain known. Once you’ve commented on a post, video or news story, report the details of your comment by clicking the button below. After your comments are verified, you will be awarded points through the McCain Online Action Center.

The "points" are most likely to purchase crappy novelty items made in China like when they you trade in tickets from skeeball (Mom for McCain hat anyone?). Of course, if it could get me a date with McCain's daughter (even though I've emailed her 4 times a day and sent 50 dozen roses with NO reply). Maybe I should consider enlisting in the sockpuppet campaign, hmm...
