Surf and astroturf

You know, if you’re really intent on spamming the nation’s Letters to the Editor pages, it would behoove you to mix things up a little now and then:

Obviously the White House has the right to get their message out, but this smacks of unseemliness. If Obama’s army of followers wants to write letters on a suggested topic that would be something else altogether. Maybe the GOP should take a lead from this and start having their followers do the same thing, but perhaps use a Chinese menu approach. Pick a paragraph from column A, another from B and a conclusion from C. That way the astroturfing would be a little harder to detect.

I dunno. It’s pretty hard to sneak this sort of thing past, say, Patterico.
