Okay, the very nice people at Akismet, who look after spam for WordPress, say they have fixed our problem:

“Extremely sorry for the inconvenience. I’ve identified and fixed a misconfiguration that was causing those commenters’ comments to be incorrectly marked as spam; they shouldn’t have a problem with that anymore.”

So, fingers and toes and ears and eyebrows crossed that all will be well. Gulp.

On This Day

Sen. Barack Obama waves during a campaign event at the Gateway arch in the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial October 18, 2008 in St Louis, Missouri

One Of The Great RWNJ Conspiracy Theories:

That the photos from the 2008 St Louis rally where Photoshopped

I read this thread that night on FreeRepublic (RWNJ central), and I still haven’t stopped laughing:

Willyd:

This 100,000 is B.S.

You can see from the pics being posted that the crowd was photoshopped. You can also see from Google that there is crowd where a major freeway runs between the arches and the old court house. Also, you can tell by the crowds in the video on CNN that there were way less then 100,000 and probably more like 5-10,000 tops.

Why are papers across the country running more photoshopped ap pictures?

I haven’t seen this kind of propaganda since I lived in Nigeria.

stlnative:

Looks like shenanigans, you betcha. I suggest contacting NewsBusters, Rush, etc.

****

Then Willyd started posting photos that he said proved the crowd size was faked.

That had everyone all a-tingle

****

lefty-lie-spy

Wow, that is disturbing. Where did this “original” photo of the photoshopping come from? How do we get exposure of this fakery?

There certainly is some funny business going on. A lot of “official” web sites are using that crowd picture, so it must be approved by the Obama campaign and delivered by them.

Its so scary to think that the media is pulling for this Communist, and that if he is elected, they will be the first people to be censored.

Willyd:

Can anyone produce any other photos that match those taken by the ap photog? Have you seen any other pictures of the event online? I would like to see other pictures of the event before going down the forensic photoshop route.

From a preliminary look though, it seems that at a certain point (consisent with where the crowds end in the CNN footage) the crowd gets very pixelated and when blown tends to blur more quickly then the people in the row just in front of them and to the same extent as the crowd way in the back.

And then the video appeared, and Free Republic – including Free Willyd – fell silent:

President Obama on the Steve Harvey Morning Show

   “The truth of the matter is, African American voters, young voters, progressive voters, Latino voters, they now vote at relatively high rates during presidential elections. But I bet a whole bunch of your listeners aren’t even thinking about this election coming up on Nov. 4. But this is really the last election in which I have the opportunity to get a Congress that will work with me [to get our progressive agenda done].

Back in 2010, folks didn’t vote. As a consequence, the tea party took over the Republican Party. We lost the House. And, although we’ve made a lot of progress on various issues since then, basically Congress has fought me every step of the way and it led to things like the shutdown and all kinds of negative consequences in terms of things like gun control that we couldn’t get done. So, we really need to have the kind of Congress that is serious about the issues that matter to folks and the responsibility is ultimately up on everybody’s who’s listening.

Folks like to complain, talk about Washington. But if only 45, 40 percent of the people are voting then it’s not surprising that Congress isn’t responsive. If people voted at the same rates during midterms as they did during presidential elections we would maintain Democratic control of the Senate . . . and so I need everybody listening to understand this is really, really important.

I need everybody to really pay attention to this thing. . . . but this is something where I’m just hoping, everybody who’s listening, says, “We’re going to give one last push so the president and the first lady have the opportunities to really use these last two years on our behalf.” It’s up to everybody who’s listening. It’s up to them to make that difference. It’s up to you.”
