UPDATED: Obama’s Doc and Pony Show

Obama did a photo op yesterday to promote Obamacare, on the Rose Garden and surrounded by doctors supportive of the plan.

But when you go behind the scenes, it looked more like an astroturfing operation, professional edition.  Especially when you compare Obama’s doctors organized in seats before a podium – to maximize the appearance of assent – with pictures of these doctors on September 10, with handmade signs; and very likely their very own white coats and scrubs.

Well, that’s because it was astroturfing: the doctors were members of Doctors for America, which was formerly known as Doctors for Obama (via LookingAtTheLeft).
