President Obama's campaign has launched yet another website soliciting public tips about slander and lies leveled against the president, and a group of conservative satirists has undertaken the task of mocking the new page in the YouTube video above.
AttackWatch.com is essentially a new incarnation of FighttheSmears.com, the site launched during the 2008 election to combat false rumors about then-senator-Obama. The new site links to comments made by Republican presidential candidates and conservative media figures; users can sign up to receive alerts about falsehoods being spread about Obama and his administration.
The parody video above was uploaded to YouTube Wednesday by Misfit Politics, a collection of conservatives promising a comedy site to be launched soon. The group includes Big Government contributor Ezra Dulis, who posted the video there yesterday suggesting the Obama campaign will use AttackWatch.com to demonize and discredit legitimate criticisms of the president.
