In the last few days, the Obama Campaign has resurrected an old, familiar feature to their 'Truth Team' website, bringing back the online form where you can snitch on your fellow American(s) if he/she/they dare speak against of Our Glorious Leader's Administration.
This all reminds me of the big debut of Attack Watch last September. Like many other conservative bloggers, I took part in the feast of mockery, and added myself to the roll call of amateur and professional writers who 'turned themselves in'.
Your bushy-tailed correspondent was looking at an old post from that week, entitled "Snitching On The MOB".
