This is actually a pretty sound political idea: Clark Community Network

These links have been collected by the Clarkbot, a Perl script written by Rick Heller. It searches the Feedster RSS search engine for references to “Wesley Clark” To be picked up by the Clarkbot, a blog must generate an RSS Feed, and that feed must be listed with Feedster. Please use this as a resource for rapid response to attacks on Clark, and leave some encouraging comments at bloggers who support Clark. As always, be civil even to those critics of the General who are not civil themselves.

I wonder if it picks up references to “Wes Clark,” “General Clark,” or “that dunderhead, Clark.”

    I think it picks up any, no matter what the content. I had a post titled “Fuck Wesley Clark”, and it added me.

    Eh, hits are hits. If we get a couple of bright commenters out of it, I’ll be happy. 🙂

  3. Another reason to not have comments
    James Joyner notes the existence of something called the “ClarkBot”, the author of which encourages Clark Dittoheads to engage in something called “rapid response.” No doubt Bush and Dean variants aren’t far behind…
