Perfect!… Obama Camp Calls Lib Bloggers the “Tinfoil Hat Crowd”


ATS

Finally, something we can all agree on…
Even the White House refers to top liberal bloggers as the “tinfoil hat” brigade
The Examiner reported, via Dan Riehl:

The Obama campaign referred to several major liberal bloggers as the “tinfoil hat crowd” in a statement to Fox News Wednesday. The campaign was responding to the cable channel’s request for a comment on an Internet conspiracy theory many of them had promoted.

Shortly after the presidential debate last week, a number of liberal bloggers including ones at Daily Kos, FireDogLake, Democratic Underground, and the Daily Beast’s Andrew Sullivan, among others, began posting items suggesting that Mitt Romney had cheated during the debate…

…Fox asked the Obama campaign for its reaction. Spokesman Ben LaBolt provided them with the following statement:

No — We’ve never casted our lot with the tinfoil hat crowd.

Granted, it was a bogus Internet meme, but that is still a fairly harsh remark for what after all popular liberal voices on the web.
