Dumb you might think some of them are, given the intellectual paucity of their comments, but it seems that the Lil'Elves' mental faculties have stretched a bit, to the extent that they've noticed that the 'Net is going to be one of the battle-grounds for the election.
For the sake of convenience, let's call it the blogosphere from now on, because 'Net is such an antiquated descriptor and anyway, everyone (mistakenly) calls "comments" "blogs" and it's not such a leap from there to include Facebook, You Tube and Twitter.
I was told about, and sent a link to, a You Tube video that MLP-fanciers have started to circulate. It starts with a snazzy intro screen saying "No Comment – PM in Balzan" or words to that effect (creative, the Elfin-like, ain't they?) and then regales us with a Super One News clip of the PM being greeted by chanting supporters in Balzan a few days ago.
And then, with cinematic dexterity rivalled only by people like Coppola and Spielberg, they cut to a clip of Gaddafi's supporters chanting some stuff of their own. The innuendo (actually, innuendo requires subtlety, this is more like a wet – or frozen – fish to the face) is that PN supporters are no better than Gaddafi's rent-a-crowd yobs, obviously.
Leaving aside the sheer hypocrisy of this sort of thing being said by MLP supporters (we all know how refined and dignified MLP mass events are, don't we? Viva l-Lejber, viva l-Lejber) are we starting to see the development of yet another MLP-sponsored re-write of history?
Not so many moons ago, Gaddafi was their bestest best buddy, indeed for some of their dinosaurs, he still is, notwithstanding that he's pushing up the daisies. Even less many moons ago, the MLP kicked up all manner of stinks because, shock horror, Malta might have been used to help the Libyans get rid of that thug.
Now his chanting ruffians are being used as a weapon of mass diversion, in their efforts to put everything PN in a negative light.
Fair enough, in an election campaign, this is the name of the game, but do these specimens really think that they can convince anyone but the hardest of their own hardliners (who are going to vote MLP whatever happens) with silly videos like this?
