Barack Obama, the original Matchstick Man (a con artist), has his army of sock puppets working the Mainstream Media and the Internet:
An account made on an internet message board, by a person who already has an account, for the purpose of posting more-or-less anonymously.
A fake personality, usually a 'friend' or 'sister,' created by a drama queen/king for the sake of defending him/herself against others in an online forum.
Someone who might be an actual person but behaves like the above, defending someone who really deserves no defense.
Used to describe a person who has no original thoughts, opinions, or ideas of his/her own. Instead they regurgitate the "party-line" or talking points of others; usually of their particular political party or candidate.
Perhaps we should bestow some kind of award for "Obama sock puppet of the week."
Something like, the "Dumb Donkey Sock Puppet Award."
I should point out that not everyone, nor even most, people who support and will vote for Obama are sock puppets--- they are victims of Obama and his team (many very well paid--- some volunteers) of sock puppets.
Perhaps some creative artist or cartoonist could create an illustration of a sock puppet using an old sock on Obama's hand?
Maybe we could even get one of the sweatshops in Haiti enabled by Bill Clinton's philanthropic foundation and enforced by U.N. troops to produce sock puppets real cheap?
We could donate the proceeds from the sales of these Cholera laden sock puppets produced in the free enterprise zones of Haiti to George Lakoff for free distribution of his books to expand Obama's army of sock puppets.
In fact, let me present the first "Dumb Donkey Sock Puppet Award" to the grand-daddy of all Obama sock puppets: George Lakoff; for making hundreds of thousands of dollars peddling his new book supplementing "Don't Think Of An Elephant"--- "The Little Blue Book: The Essential Guide to Thinking and Talking Democratic."
