If you haven't seen this in one of those emails your annoying conservative relatives keep sending you , here it is for your Laugh-of-the-Day:
The obviously photo shopped image has gone viral throughout Teapartistan. How many of the recipients of this fraud believed it, because BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA?!
I'm guessing all of them.
This is just another example of childish gullibility because of their willingness to believe any sort of lie involving either a liberal or President Obama. And their eager willingness to believe all the propaganda delivered to them by FAUX NOOZ and the conservative noise machine.
"Fox & Friends Saturday criticized President Obama for offering to personally pay for a "museum of Muslim culture" during the government shutdown, a claim that originated from a satire website. On October 5, the co-hosts of Fox & Friends Saturday discussed the closure of the World War II Memorial, which resulted from the Republican-led shutdown. During the discussion, co-host Anna Kooiman claimed that while the memorial is closed, "President Obama has offered to pay out of his own pocket for the museum of Muslim culture." --SOURCE
I've seen this in operation in another area, the conservative blogshere, where a friend of mine set up a blog identity so that he could comment on my and other liberal blogs, and then one of the cretins in the conservative blogsphere stole his ID and avatar and pretended to be him. The slimeball perpetrating the fraud thinks it's all a joke. But the joke is on him and his confreres who believed the fraud was really my friend.
The larger message in the above example is what we've always known--that too many on the hysterical right are willing to be suckered into believing any wild story or, most especially, a fraud (q.v. Sarah Palin, Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann, Ted Cruz).
I saw it happen just recently with my own eyes.
