Obama-tied PR Firm Behind Palin Smears

Hat tip to The Corner's Katheryn Jean Lopez.

Did the Obama camp hire a PR firm to dig up dirt on Palin? The firm is named Winner and Associates, a division of Publicis Group, one of the world's top 10 PR firms.

If this is true, it must just be typical political tactics, hence no big deal, right? Yeah, maybe not so much.

It's possible this is a clear violation of FEC rules regarding identifying who paid for the messages and announcing their ties (if any) to campaigns - two things the creators did not do.

The emergence of a previously unseen writing sample proves all but conclusively that Barack Obama did not in any meaningful way write "Dreams from My Father," the book Time Magazine has called "the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician."

The emergence of a second writing sample, this one by a legitimate author, provides convincing evidence as to who did.

In 1990, the University of Illinois at Springfield published a collection of essays called "After Alinsky: Community Organizing in Illinois." Obama contributed a chapter, titled: "Why Organize? Problems and Promise in the Inner City."
