John McCain To Followers: Its Time To Troll The Blogosphere!

Filed as General, News on May 21, 2008 8:48 pm

Ironically, just when this author started to warm up to the Maverick (for entering into hostile territory), it looks as if they are encouraging their followers to post “positive thoughts” or at least actively defend McCain’s name in the comment section, an item that may not please many political (and non-political) blogs.

(JohnMcCain.com) Help spread the word about John McCain on news and blog sites.

It’s not the fact that John McCain is encouraging followers to comment upon blogs/news sites that is disturbing. After all, its probably wise to have a volunteer army defending ones own name.

Its the part where users have to report back to headquarters, as if its some intelligence agency (like the KGB or CIA).

If McCain wants to be successful online (as well as off) then he should encourage passionate followers to simply voice their opinion without the need to receive a “pat on the head” by reporting their daily good deed.

Otherwise he just might find himself fighting the blogosphere once again.

    John McCain might have been a good US President but the people in the US does not need another Republican, that is why he lost in the election. Obama perfectly states the need of the people in his campaign slogan and that is “change we can”.
