I've been Freeper-lanched!

I was checking Colossus visitors earlier this afternoon and noticed a great many coming from the well-known Free Republic.com site, specifically this thread. It seems someone used the screen capture I made for my Newsbusters post yesterday (regarding the Houston Obama campaign office that had the Cuban flag with Che Guevara on it hanging on the wall).

But that's not what brought the visitors. It seems a commenter thought that since the Colossus server hosted the pic, it was somehow "illegitimate." That, and because we (I, actually) occasionally write about "Battlestar Galactica" on the blog! Well, pardon me. Amazing how this genius managed to find the "Galactica" stuff, but somehow missed the vast amount of other -- POLITICAL -- material, including the big "Contributor to Newsbusters" icon at the top of the blog.

Hopefully, though, the visitors that came here from FR have realized that this "HawaiianGecko" guy is a total tool.

And I've gotten big- time hits from NY Time's Caucus blog on the same story, which is linked back to your Newsbusters piece.
