Snopes is never going to give you up

We received an email from some friends and family members titled:

"Snopes is owned by a flaming liberal and this man is in the tank for Obama."

No way. No way are we falling for that. We looked for a link on this email which would send us to hurtling head-long to the hell that is rick rolled but did not find any such link.

OK, then. Perhaps we dodged that bullet. But what, then, of the claim? The body of the email claimed long-held suspicions and also that YouTube videos in question “didn’t square with the Snopes propaganda.”

So what did we do, then? Oh, you better believe we did. Of course we went to to ask them if they were owned by “a flaming liberal”. The search results page is here. Nothing. Nada. Zippo. Which is mildly curious in and of itself since we have yet to have an alleged urban myth forwarded to us to which Snopes did not have a response.

So on the claim that is owned by “a flaming liberal who is in the tank for Obama”.

Status: Inconclusive

Stay tuned

Washington=Hollywood, Mr Lloyd, Fire up the Obama private jet and you have exceeded the wardrobe expense. Look at the damage to Nixon not being "hollywood" during his debate. Where is the wardrobe, haircut debate with Clinton, Edwards and the like.

It's sad we have come to this, but what's good for the goose....

Palin's hot without the make-up. Nothing is more sexy than a self assured womoan.

As for Snopes, as one of those who should check before I send, I was disappointed to hear the story. BwD, please keep us posted.

Since this POS accusation recommends ... why not check with them?:

Their answer? -- Fiction!

Is our nation going to become nothing more than a bunch of lemmings thoughtlessly following any propaganda B.S.???

Folks -- start acting like you have a brain!!!

Cool your jets, Mongo. Just trying to have a little fun in case the tone and context of the post blew right past you.

Huh? The second "anonymous" post belonged not to Shank Piston Palin The Anonymous. That anonymous poster, though clearly on the correct path, doesn't quite have that wit, charm, good looks, and what the French call that certain... I don't know what... in the way he/she posts like I do.

As for my good buddy 'Dawg? You back?? Been a while. I was starting to get worried you had been shot down on the front lines of the War to Separate the States. How's that effort turnin' for ya, anyway? I always have a profound respect and admiration for "true Americans" that have a deep desire to declare their independence from -- Ta Da! -- America. Please do give us an update. Any word from General Lee on the prospects of The Cause?

Mr Lloyd, I just wonder when we have had enough, and maybe that begins at state rights. Maybe America has to be America for us to stay patriotic. When America starts to look like Europe, and we have years of infringement on our rights, when do we advocate revolution or seccession? Is there never a point? Do we continue down a dark path until there is no turning back? So some people say it's now. I applaud them for their revolt against tyranny far above being an American. That's what an American used to be.

And Lloyd, previous anon does not have your charm, but is just as unfunny.

Mongo, I know it's old news but what's your take on Barry renigging on his pledge for campaign finance?

Chicago, wearing me out,

Howdy! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I had to
ask. Does managing a well-established blog such as
yours require a lot of work? I'm brand new to blogging but I do write in my journal daily. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and views online.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie.

I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon.
Many thanks
