Now it can be revealed! I signed up for three accounts at my.barackobama.com, two of which were satires that, unfortunately, never took off.
However, the first account was done under the name of one of my sites and wasn't a satire;that's described here.
Then, using the name "Bill Hawkins", I posted the satirical entry about driving "hate" sites off the internet described here.
Finally, using the name "Robert Bellaire", I posted the best one yet at my.barackobama.com/page/community/blog/robertbellaire. The second post at that page asked BHO supporters to all wear blue to his rallies. The desired result was a scary picture at the Drudgereport showing a sea of blue with the headline "Blue Shirts".
The first post at that page was a creepy program called "Neighbor2Neighbor" where people would rat out their neighbors:
What the Obama campaign should do is set up a "Neighbor2Neighbor" program. When someone in your community starts spreading lies, you can go to the Obama website and fill out an "incident" form, typing in the person's name, their contact information, and a description of the lies and smears they're peddling. A "campaign counselor" can then contact them by phone to discuss with them all the ways they're wrong. In extreme cases, counselors can even go out to the person's home and try to talk some sense into them. Obama himself said we need to get into peoples' faces and convince them to vote for him, and this program will help us do just that. Of course, the campaign shouldn't reveal the name of the tipster, but after the (former!) "smear spreader" sees the light they'll be grateful to whoever filed the tip.
It never took off at BHO's site, but it got four favorable comments when I reposted it here: dailykos.com/story/2008/10/9/142229/749
Despite the above not working, I don't think it's going to be difficult to get something to break through one of these days.
