Smear

Talkleft reports that Obama has a new website called "Fight The Smears" that is, as the name suggests, meant to put to rest some of the wild internet and conservative rumors that are going around.

Talkleft sums it up so I don't have to...

"I'm wondering if a website like this can make a difference. Normally I would say no, however I thought one feature on the site could make a difference. It allows readers to e-mail any particular debunk to others. So if, for example, a person was at work and heard someone claim one of the smears was true, he or she could have the debunk emailed to everyone they think might have heard it.

On the other hand, I wonder if people who are inclined to believe the smears would be satisfied with a statement from the Obama campaign as opposed to an independent source."

I had already checked it out...I like the idea of it. "Whitey" seems to have been put to rest. Maybe....
