GOP Tackles Barack's Online Presence

By Marcus Gilmer in News on Nov 24, 2008 4:10PM

2008_11_24_barackbook.jpgWe have to hand it to the GOP: regardless of your political stance, the Republican Party has come up with a nice piece of online satire with The site, designed to mirror Facebook, satirizes Barack's online presence while also being used as a tool for pushing the GOP agenda. The site was originally started in July, but continues to be updated even since Obama won the Presidential election on November 4. Of course, the site loses its bite by satirizing one of the reasons Obama won the election (those pesky internets), but its continual presence may provide Republicans with a successful tool as the new administration begins and focus turns to 2010. That is, if they can come up with more successful attacks than the exhausted attempts to connect Obama to William Ayers and ACORN.
