Obama ‘Thesis’ - a Hoax
Rush Limbaugh, Michael Ledeen, and a host of wingnut blogs were radically punk’d today by a hoax report that originated at ‘jumpinginpools’ (a blog run by a fool who was recently banned from LGF for relentlessly pimping his blog, and registering sock puppet after sock puppet to upding his own posts), claiming to have “10 pages from Obama’s college thesis” that proved Obama was a commie, plotting to trash the Constitution.
It was completely false. The ‘jumpinginpools’ blogger put a ‘satire’ tag at the bottom of his crudely written post, but all these people missed it. Those who fell for the hoax included Rush Limbaugh, Michael Ledeen, shrieking harpy Pamela Geller, American Thinker, etc. etc.
Then, to make things even more ridiculous, Limbaugh sort of recanted in the second half of his radio show — but actually said he doesn’t care if the quotes were fake, because “I know Obama thinks it.”
I seem to recall Rush Limbaugh complaining bitterly about false racist quotes attributed to him (while ignoring the dozens of real quotes). And now here he is, using the “fake but accurate” excuse himself, because he magically knows what Barack Obama is thinking.
Today’s letter is “H,” and that stands for massive Hypocrisy.
