In our previous post, we talked about Romney's recent dealings with conspiracy kingpin Jerome Corsi. The above Rachel Maddow clip gives us more on that. I honestly did not know what Corsi has been getting up to, lately. Apparently, Barack Obama has murdered all of his previous gay "husbands."
In the meantime, I contacted a representative of the "October Surprise" countdown site. He assured me that this is not a "Rickroll" type gag. But: The message of denial I received was signed "Jeff" -- and a man named Jeff Hopwood is credited with being one of a duo responsible for the so-called "Greatest Rickroll ever."
However, Hopwood himself told Buzzfeed that he simply put the site together, and doesn't know the surprise.
On the site right now, a message says "Forget the counter -- it's go time right now." And the counter itself shows a time not congruent with what I saw just a short while ago. It says 3 days, ten hours now. Three hours ago, it said 4 days Something.
Update: It's a gag.
Sorry folks. Did NOT expect this level of interest. Apologies! Jokes! Vote!
