An Inconvenient Spoof: Exposed

There's a little known fact (at least until recently) about the parody of Al Gore's film, An Inconvenient Truth, that has been making the YouTube rounds. What was supposedly an amateur spoof, and not even a very entertaining one at that, was actually concocted by the Republican PR firm DCI.

Whatever anti-Gore or anti-anti-Global Warming buzz DCI, and its client Exxon hoped to create with the video is most decidedly being trumped by the backlash this disclosure has generated. To wit:

Proof, once more, that the Republicans are not afraid to cheat to win. And a sober reminder that, for every YouTube clip that is exposed as part of the Republican PR machine, there is almost certainly an unearthened mountain of similarly disingenuous propaganda floating around in the eddies of the internet.
