Results Bachmann FB page flash mob

Well, thousands of comments have been posted on Michele Bachmann's FB page this afternoon as a result of a virtual flash mob. We're not sure about the usefulness of this kind of online activism -- maybe it kept Bachmann's staff busy deleting critical posts instead of raising money from anti-worker donors like the Koch brothers.

Here's an example of how it worked:
Bachman (or probably a staff member) posts,
On behalf of my entire family, I would like to extend my sincere condolences to the Ford family on this sad occasion. May God give them comfort at this time as we all remember the many accomplishments of Betty Ford.
Then (presumably) flash mobster Larry Yoshida posts
you're not fooling anyone. given your knowledge of history, you probably think she's Henry Ford's wife
Here are some other comments:

Myron J. Martin Lowering corporate taxes will create jobs??? How??? People have to be buying their products first...and some corporations didn't even pay taxes last year

Paul Michael Taylor Michelle heard creating jobs is a "no-brainer", so she promptly replied, "Then I'm your Gal!"
