Perfect: Fake doctor at Dem’s town hall was invited by Che-loving Obama volunteer

posted at 5:26 pm on August 14, 2009 by Allahpundit

I’m not sure what the connection’s supposed to prove — was Che into using people with fake credentials at rallies? — but no righty blogger can resist a recipe with ingredients like this. It’s the political equivalent of a “This Is Why You’re Fat” concoction. Che + Obama + health-care sockpuppet = crazy delicious!

Actually, what the connection proves (maybe) is that they’re connected at all:

Mayer yesterday told me that she was invited to the town hall meeting by a listserv message sent by Maria Isabel, who ran an Obama campaign office sporting a Che Guevara flag:

“Look, Maria Che-Guevara lady, or whatever, I saw her at about three events during the primaries, and she was a county delegate, too. I know she has been very involved with a lot of stuff with the campaign, but I did not get involved in the general election. I am on a listserve where she sent out a message about the town hall. I haven’t coordinated with her, didn’t even say that I was going. She’s a bit over the top, huh?”…

But you know what. Ms. Mayer? It’s also a bit over the top to lie about whether you are a doctor to enhance your credibility in a discussion about health care. So I’d say you and Maria Isabel are two peas in an “over the top” pod.

Follow the “crazy delicious” link to Patterico’s post and you’ll find photos of them together at the rally. Are they really not coordinating? Or are they plotting more hamfisted, inadvertently comic astroturfing operations whose stories are yet untold? Only one thing’s certain: If the Houston Chronicle reports on it, they’ll do so after Patterico drags them to the story kicking and screaming.

Update: A nice catch by Ace, noting that the Chronicle “forgot” to mention that fake doctor Mayer is a very real former organizer for Obama for America.

Well, Che was actually a doctor.
Maybe they thought that would rub off on the fake doc.
Obama’s thugs in action.

cubachi on August 14, 2009 at 5:32 PM

I wondered how long it would take to officially connect these two wing-nuts together.

One of the other blogs had already looked at the shots of Mayer at the meeting and identified Isabel as sitting next to her. It seemed too much to be a coincidence.

teke184 on August 14, 2009 at 5:33 PM

What I really want is a CHEney banner. Tried to ‘shop one but my skills weren’t up to it.

I think it would be so fun to wave at moonbat gatherings.

innominatus on August 14, 2009 at 5:35 PM

The Che stuff is practically an automatic given for Obamabot lefty…so that doesn’t add much, if anything, to the story for me…what is so delicious about this is it comes right at the VERY MOMENT Pelosi and Reid and Obama and the MSM are screaming their lungs out about nefarious right wing astroturfers…the timing is so perfect it almost seems like a Rovian plot..hehehehehe. I’ve got to say it one more time…Karl, you magnificent bastard you!

Yeah, having a Guevara flag in your office is over the top. Inventing a persona of a pediatrician with four years experience for a political forum is perfectly normal.

Hold on now, the fake doctor told Patterico she attended the town hall on a request from some friends of hers who were real doctors.

Actually, he wasn’t. The med school he claimed to have graduated from has no record of him doing so. So Che was faking it, too. In fact, the one persistent theme among leading radicals is that they failed in their first professions.

bucsox79 on August 14, 2009 at 5:59 PM

Ann Coulter always likes to say that you can tell what liberals are up to by what they accuse you of doing. She’s absolutely right on this. They’ve spent the last week barraging the debate with transparent, ham-handed astroturfing. To lay the groundwork all they had to do is accuse our side of the same, and it more or less gets a free pass outside of the blogs and talk radio. They don’t even half to be discreet about it.

The whole notions of czars is disturbing but I do enjoy the ‘truth in advertising’ in appointing a self-avowed communist as the green czar. Most large ‘green’ movements are just thinly veiled attempts to push a socialist/communist shift in government.

gwelf on August 14, 2009 at 7:13 PM

Maria Isabel has a masters degree in social work which means she’s much much more important and knowledgeable than a doctor and can in a pinch act as one.

Also, Che helped to create a country with better healthcare than America so you should all just shut up!

Yesterday local Houston talk radio host Michael Berry had THE best one yet on SJL. Michael is a lawyer, ex-Houston city councilman and was candidate for mayor, but Bill White won. Anyway, he raggs on Sheila all of the time. Lately he has been running an interview asking her who paid for her trip to Michael Jackson’s funeral. She sounded just like Obama explaining that she has um um RESOURSES that have nothing to do with her position working in Congress. The guy asked her public funds? She said RESOURSES.

Anyway long story short, Michael now wants to know just WHO was on the phone that was SO important. He had a recording of the phone ringing and her answering CONGRESSWOMAN SHIELA JACKSON LEE, and then he had his callers fill in what the caller said. There were some really good ones, I laughed by ass of driving all the way home!

I can just see the blood shooting out of her eyes!

Tell me I need an ID to go to a meeting as a citizen of the United States but he wants every illegal in his district to be able to vote for him! I dont think so! I sent it to him, and then posted it on every web site I go to. I was not yet a member here. I sent it in as a tip to drudge and asked them to carry it. I put it on politico, and elsewhere. Low and behold I saw it the next day on Newsbusters and he has grown from there. Rush and Hannity mentioned it yesterday. And I saw it this morning as a crawl on the screen on Fox news!

The problem with the kook conspiracies is that it provides cover for any real conspiracies by ridiculing/silencing those who would shine a light on them. Any suggestion of collusion automatically makes you a kook. This is partly why Ogabe won’t provide evidence to end the birther conspiracy talk. It serves his purpose of deligitimizing all opposition.
