National Party pollster David Farrar must be seeing some numbers he really doesn’t like because he’s veered off on another weird attack on David Cunliffe.
This time he’s falsely claiming Cunliffe’s photoshopped himself into an event he didn’t attend.
The slight problem with Farrar’s breathless accusation is that there are pictures online of David at the rally. Like this one and many more that can easily be found around the net…
This looks like another odd attempt to smear a man that the Nats are clearly worried about. It looks David Farrar finally realised how much of a dickhead he looks as he goes from this incorrect assertion (ie a lie) with a touch of plausible deniability.
I’m not a photoshop expert but I’ve shown it to a couple of people who handy with photo editing, and they reckon it is photoshopped. They may be wrong. Any experts out there who can offer an opinion?
Which when he finds he is wrong descends to this attempt at pushing infer that the his guilt for being a very lazy mischief maker is the other guys fault…
UPDATE: Have had confirmed that David Cunliffe was at the rally. So the image may be touched up, but is genuine.
And on to a series of justification about why he David Farrar really is not just a petty dipshit putting out this kind of nonsense and never bothering to check it. I guess he is trying to remember the glory days when he was the single big voice in the local blogs and could lie like this for his paymasters with relative impunity.
It is a hell of a bad look for someone who has spent so much time on the board of InternetNZ that he is too damn lazy to use google to check some bullshit someone sent him. I guess that they were hard up for competent candidates.
But even weirder (as usual) is the under-employed Cameron Slater, a blogger with no visible means of support and with lots of friends in the Prime Minsters office, posting creepy, paparazzi style pictures of David Cunliffe eating his lunch at parliament. The question one has to ask is from whom did the bloated moron get this photo from? John Key our Minister for Photo-ops or his personal blogmeister Jason Ede perhaps?
Only in the weird and obsessive imaginations of the bloggers that the National Party pays for one way or another could eating your lunch and speaking to a rally in support of saving kidnapped girls be political crimes.
What dirt will they dig up next? David Cunliffe buying shoes? Oh, wait
Just pathetic. I expect we will see a lot more of National’s dickheads acting like fools heading into this election. It isn’t like they have substantial to support in this governments economic record apart from National being good at putting us heavily into debt again.
