A Semi-amusing Follow-Up.

Remember all that "Obama is the Devil" shit my inlaws emailed me Monday morning? Today I got this from them:

From a friend:

I have suspected some problems with Snopes for some time now, but I have only caught them in half-truths. If there is any subjectivity they do an immediate full left rudder.

Truth or is the better source for verification, in my opinion.

I have recently discovered that is owned by a flaming liberal and this man is in the tank for Obama. There are many things they have listed on their site as a hoax and yet you can go to Youtube yourself and find the video of Obama actually saying these things. So you see, you cannot and should not trust for anything that remotely resembles truth! I don't even trust them to tell me if email chains are hoaxes anymore.

A few conservative speakers on Myspace told me about a few months ago and I took it upon myself to do a little research to find out if it was true. Well, I found out for myself that it is true. This website is backing Obama and is covering up for him. They will say anything that makes him look bad is a hoax and they also tell lies on the other side about McCain and Palin.

Anyway just FYI please don't use anymore for fact checking and make your friends aware of their political leanings as well. Many people still think is neutral and they can be trusted as factual. We need to make sure everyone is aware that that is a hoax in itself.

Ok. So do you want us to believe Snopes or not? Remember my favorite bullshit email of the four they sent me? It was the SNOPES article about how Michelle Obama intends use her husband's position to enslave the White Man to as payback for years of oppression? The article contained in the email isn't on Snopes at all; here's what shows up when you search Snopes for Michelle Obama Senior Thesis.

Yeah, I think it's crap that Princeton restricted it, if it's true that they did (and who knows?), but Snopes tried to put the whole thing in context, and it's Oooooh, see?? They try to shift the focus off of her secret agenda! Snopes can't be trusted! It's a massive left-wing conspiracy! God help us all!!

Could it be that your guy really is a douchebag?

I've already voted for McCain (absentee ballot), but if I hadn't, I would have changed that vote to Obama (who is going to win anyway) just to join in solidarity against FIL. And I 100% mean that.

No, no. It has to be true! I got an email today (I don't know WHY an important piece of communication like that got tossed in the Junk folder by a spam filter) that said CNN had picked up a story from AOL that said Bill Gates was testing a new email tracking system, and paying $1 to John McCain's campaign for each forward of the email that said was secretly supporting Obama!

The email also said NBC was reporting that Obama had written and distributed a virus-laden email that would steal your credit card and bank account information, and make anonymous donations to Obama's campaign from your accounts! Apparently that's how Obama was able to raise so much more money than McCain. According to the email, McAfee verified this was true! And once it's on your system, the virus is undetectable and there's no way to remove it! So you're not supposed to open any email that says has a subject supporting Obama or opposing McCain.

I feel so much safer and more informed now that I read that email. The overwhelming number of exclamation marks and references to high profile sources really got the message across to me as to just how important (and real) all this was.

It's like, Oh, wait! That last email we sent you, from Snopes? Never mind! We shouldn't have sent that! We just discovered through our extensive research that Snopes is evil! Snopes, our source for thwarting the left wing deception can't be trusted! We've been deceived in our misguided efforts to bring the undecided into the light!!! Where does it end?

KOFA was actually Stumping for Nader. Until I told him it sounded like a euphamism of some sort.
