Obamamessiah is a common term on FR. See here *http://tinyurl.com/9qkbdy *and
look for the term.

Along with using <> as delimiters that term was used also by our good
friend, Janice. See here for an example. The first two uses the term above
and the second show the use of <> as delimiters.

Note how it's *exactly* the same text as Lynn posted to our e-mail list,
except that the "stories" are in different order. The ASA archiver captured
the URLs of the Google news search while FR did not, marking a common source
cut and pasted to both. People who received an actual e-mail had a
stock-ticker image just before the YHOO. Note how the respective archivers
handled this. The ASA post pre-dated the FR one.

Note how Janice's post was not snipped. In the first case of copied text,
Lynn's post pre-dated Janice's. In today's installment it was the other way
around. Somehow this strikes me as something other than a coincidence.
