Maciver: You Do the Work, Because We Can’t

Every year it seems that we have a new right wing organization, and this year it was the shady Maciver Institute. Apparently the sugar daddies on the right wing have more money to burn than they know what to do with. For weeks this organization only produced tweets, then they graduated to sending out press releases that were secretly being written by Scott Jensen. In the weeks since their clumsy launch, they have produced a poll and a few "studies" with one common theme – they were all done by someone else. One can't blame them, since they still don't appear to have a staff. But now they are extending this pattern of behavior even further. They are trying to get the public to start doing their investigative work for them. At some point, don't we get to ask if this is really an actual organization?
