Here’s another great one from the queen of wingnut hypocrites, Michelle Malkin:
That’s in a post she did on AttackWatch, a new site launched by Obama for America to track smears.
So exactly what cookies are they using? Well they actually have quiet a few, which is common for most sites, but the biggest tracking cookie I saw comes from Google Analytics. That is also verified by looking at the source code on AttackWatch’s page:
var ga = document.createElement('script');
ga.async = true;
ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script'); s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);})();
That right loads in the the tracking code from the Google Analytic service. This is a very popular service used by site owners to get ideas of how many visitors they have and even what pages are popular. I even use it on this page, as does Malkin herself:
_uacct = “UA-2595414-1”;
And that is the interesting thing. Malkin’s going after Obama for using a very common analytics service and she also uses it herself. The only difference between the two? Obama doesn’t have a history of stalking 12 year old children, unlike Malkin.
