Only a handful of political insiders have even noticed – especially three Colorado blogs (leave a comment or send an email if you want to know which ones) bent on bringing down all GOP presidential candidates except the obscure also-ran Jim Gilmore – but there are some weird things being said at a site styled as an official Sam Brownback for President campaign blog. And news being slow as it is around a holiday, the Denver Post‘s Karen Crummy had a full-length story published on it today.
For those who have gotten a lot of mileage out of disparaging Senator Brownback based on the outlandish absurdity posted on the site in question – in other words, for those who have chosen to disbelieve the obvious – this may come as a startling revelation:
The operators of the two Brownback sites, which are hosted on a popular blogging site, have not publicly identified themselves. A posting allegedly from the site’s administrator appeared one day asking visitors not to forward “any comments with regard to racist language, personal abuse or civil- action suits” because it is not responsible for the content. The “Blogs 4 Brownback” site is a parody, the administrator said.
Of course, it’s a parody. An author continuing to treat its contents seriously risks the loss of any remaining credibility.
(Yes, it’s a slow day in this corner of Colorado’s blogosphere.)
