Campaign '08: Let the Sock-Puppetry Begin!

Danny Glover notes that shilling will undoubtedly be coming soon to a comments thread near you.

Being that it's politics, I'd bet most of the young campaign staff charged with sock-puppeting probably won't even know that it's considered gravely unethical in the blogosphere. To a lot of campaign operatives, it'll just look like good messaging and communications until they're walloped with a Patterico beat-down ala Glenn Ellers Ellensburg Greenwald III.

And, by then, it will be too late. It'll be important for campaigns to have smart blog-gurus on board who know that Patterico and Goldstein and others will go all Carnac the Magnificent on your IP addresses. You will not hide from them.
