The Lengths People Will Go To To Spread Lies...

astounds me.

Check this out: some crazy lady who loves John Bolton claims that Barack Obama is, in fact, an illegitimate love child of Malcolm X. Great Flying Spaghetti Monster, what a scandal!! Riiiiiight.

Here's what Gawker and some other dude have to say about it.

Seriously, people. Stop with the ridiculousness. It's not going to work. And if it does, I'll be seriously fucking-ass disappointed.

At the same time, it's like all these claims that he's a Muslim or an Arab. Intended to scare "certain people", but to the rest of the population it's like, WHO CARES. What's so wrong with being Arab, Muslim, or even the son of Malcolm X?

I had a whole post about the job search in my head, but this is what inspired me to put "pen to paper."

At first I read that as "loves Michael Bolton" and thought "Well, that certainly says something about whether or not she has discerning taste but...?" Makes so much more sense that it's John Bolton.

Do people who write this kind of stuff really expect to be taken seriously?

And does she realize that if her Malcolm X love-child theory were to take off that it could very well have the opposite effect to what she's hoping for?

Amazing, really.
