Sure, it might get you the wrong type of attention, or people might suspect you wear a tin foil hat to receive better reception, but this is one of the most artful pieces of link bait I've seen:

"The 'socialist' label that Sen. John McCain and his GOP presidential running mate Sarah Palin are trying to attach to Sen. Barack Obama actually has long and very ugly historical roots."

"J. Edgar Hoover, director of the FBI from 1924 to 1972, used the term liberally to describe African Americans who spent their lives fighting for equality."

Come on, now? That's a bit of a stretch.

Intentional and artful, or unintentionally ridiculous? Either way, Drudge linked it. And so did I.
