Astroturf Smears - With Ties to Obama?

Jawa asserts:
Our research suggests that a subdivision of one of the largest public relations firms in the world most likely started and promulgated rumors about Sarah Palin that were known to be false. These rumors were spread in a surreptitious manner to avoid exposure.

It is also likely that the PR firm was paid by outside sources to run the smear campaign. While not conclusive, evidence suggests a link to the Barack Obama campaign.

Jawa then lists eight points, followed by an interesting update:

Within 1 hour of posting, "eswinner" has removed all videos from YouTube and began removing any traces of his activities. But we have the video and all relevant websites backed up.

If "eswinner" isn't Ethan Winner of the Publicis Groupe, then why did "eswinner" yank the video so quickly? Or if this was just an innocent homemade ad, then what does he have to hide? You'd think he'd want more attention for it.

This seems to have the smell of three day old fish and the fingerprints of Captain Combover (David Axelrod) all over it!

Jawa has another video comparing the voice on this "amateur" video with one of Obama's ads:

Check out My Pet Jawa. He goes into great detail of who these people are posting the ad and their connections to Barack Obama. It appears to be "astroturf" at best, a way to circumvent Federal election law at worst. We report, you decide!
