BS Argument Of The Day

From the normally reliable Winds Of Change:

I need to weigh in on the Obama/anti-Semetic web page brouhaha. The critics need to chill before they badly embarrass themselves on this one.

While there are legitimate grounds to poke Obama on his issues wrt Israel and Jews (and in response to being poked, he's made pretty much all the right noises - enough that it's not a Top Ten issue for me), this is absolutely, unqualifiedly not one of them.

Here's why. Any registered user of can post a blog - which this was. There's no advance moderation, because - I imagine - they can't afford it, and they want to keep the site 'spontaneous'.

Yeah, right. The wealthiest campaign in recorded history can't afford to do quality control on its official campaign website.

I'm sorry, but who is embarrassing themselves here?

Yeah, he has an internet "war room" of dedicated cybernauts to combat rumors, but he can't keep his own website clean.

Until anyone can prove otherwise, I have to assume the truth is his people didn't see anything wrong with the posts when they saw them the first time round.

Now now, let's not attribute to malice what can be explained by incompetence.... ;-)
