I know Fark isn't a microcosm of the general voting public, but the thing I am afraid of is that 60 days of snark like this might energize the whole "thats sexist!!" crowd and swing some sympathy votes her way.

I'm "popping" to her integrity right now.

Kinda the same way that Larry Craig picked up all those gay votes?

Doesnt everyone do this? I figured thats one of the big reasons wikipedia sucks.

not really, unless you're saying she's going to call a press conference to say "I'm not hot with big tits".

If I am the catalyst for that shift in voter attitude...me...Howie Spankowitz...on Fark.com...our country deserves President Sarah Palin when John McCain keels over during a contentious bowel movement.

I thought I heard that it originally said "eye-popping on a cold day"

How can a major political candidate nowadays not have an advance team that scrubs the interwebs six months ago, not the day after you take second banana on the presidential ticket?

God, the stupidity of our ruling class never fails to amaze.

Can't they trace the IP address of the user making the changes and see if it came from Alaska?

Because all this stuff sure seems like a massive amount of speculation at this point. Anyone could register with a username with her son's name.

KaponoFor3: Can't they trace the IP address of the user making the changes and see if it came from Alaska?

They should be able to. I'm actually with you on this, until someone can prove that she or her staff or her family did this, I could care less.

GAT_00: They should be able to. I'm actually with you on this, until someone can prove that she or her staff or her family did this, I could care less.

Exactly, at this point is 100% speculation. If the IP address comes back to Alaska, then things start getting a little more fishy (even though that alone doesn't prove Palin or anyone in her family did it)
 
2008-08-30 12:12:32 AM
If this is true she's off to a great start and is being consistent with McCain's message. Lie your ass off and hope you don't get caught.

She lied about her support of the bridge to nowhere and now this. McCain is going to be very sorry he tried this little political stunt.

...and yet they stay firmly entrenched in power.

They do it because we all let them get away with doing it. Over and over and over again.

It's easy to fake IP addresses, so that's inconclusive.

In any event the IP address of the editor doesn't always seem to be available via the public interface of the code that tracks the changes. There may be another way to do it that I'm not finding. I'm not really looking that hard,

I looked over some of textual differences. From what I saw at most the editor slanted the article in favor of Palin. One guy claims that a link to a WSJ article was scrubbed, but I didn't look that closely.

The only troubling bit (to me) is that the changes were made prior to the official announcement. As you say though, that's not proof that Palin's staff did it.

If they were dumb enough to make a lot of obviously slanted Wikipedia edits -- especially in article sure to get a lot of scrutiny -- what are the chances they'd be smart enough to hide their IP address?

HansensDisease: here may be another way to do it that I'm not finding. I'm not really looking that hard,

There isn't not for normal users anyway. For privacy reasons, If the person is posting as a registered user, their IP info isn't made public because the edits can be tracked through their account.

Someone from Kos has already posted a Conflict of Interest on that person's wikipedia user page. Just asking for some explanation, that's all they really can do. That I know of.

This is actually the first time I've wanted to see a politician in homemade porn.


And that's some change I can get behind.. over.. and over again.

Presumably they saw that McCain and his team rely a lot on wikipedia.
 
2008-08-30 12:46:16 AM
It's obviously the most important step, editing her bio on a website that has often had it's NPOV called into question. I mean, it's not like she's going to have her entire life put under the microscope for the new couple of months. The wiki text will trump everything.

/sheesh
 
2008-08-30 12:50:36 AM
*shrug* she's just a female Joe Arpaio. Power hungry attention whore. She's not a populist, she's a neocon who uses populist rhetoric and publicity stunts to capture the minds of the teeming unwashed.

And if Sheriff Joe's prostitution stings didn't involve actually having sex with the girls to make sure that they're really prostitutes, even he would have made a better running mate.

Asa Phelps: ... she's a neocon...

*insert picture of Inigo Montoya here*


She's pretty solid on her defense of the 1st and 4th amendments, and seems to take the Alaskan "stay the fark out of my private life" mindset to heart.

Perhaps neocon is the wrong word.

Lets put it this way. I'm against anyone who's been for Buchannan.

I think she has huge farking tits of abuse of power, and I'm dismayed that you'd think of anyone else while drunk.

Fair enough.

I just don't want an actual conservative painted with the same brush as those fascist scum. I'd take one Sarah Palin, scandals and all, over a dozen neocons.

I think you have huge farking tits of mammary glands and I'm wondering why you'd rather I think of other women when I'm sober.

Wait, a politician embroiled in abuse of power scandals is caught manipulating the facts in order to sway public opinion?

Sweet!

I thought I covered that with McCain's "contentious bowel movement."
