64. The Freeper thread exulting over the fake: 4,716 posts
Edited on Mon Aug-03-09 02:08 AM by Jim Lane
Here's the link. I wonder if 4,716 posts is a record for the Freakshow.

I haven't read more than a handful of the, uh, contributions. To my surprise, one of the few that I read, because it was at the top of the last page (#4701), actually suggested that the writer might have a few functioning neurons:

This is completely nuts. Over 4600 posts to a thread which begins with nothing but yet another in a long parade of evidence-free claims that some self-promoter has come up with proof that Obama is not eligible to be POTUS! Did any of the 9/11 threads even get this long?

I really worry about the direction FR is heading in. Theres nowhere near this much interest in Obamas health care proposal, which is 100% real and could do serious and irreparable harm to our nation.

Credit the Freeper who posts as "GovernmentShrinker" with outthinking his or her colleagues.... OK, that's damning with faint praise, but it's something. (There aren't even any misspelled words. The post misuses "which" (it introduces a restrictive clause, so the word should have been "that"), but that error is so common these days that I'd have to let it slide.)

On edit: My count is already inaccurate. In about half an hour they added 45 more posts. They're now up to 4,761. Skinner, could we have a pool on when they'll hit 5,000? Free DU t-shirt to the winner?
