Excellent New Source on the Obama Birth Certificate Scandal

I saw it at the grocery store in The Globe. The most ridiculous of supermarket tabloids. (The bastion of journalistic integrity that published the Gary Coleman death pictures.) Another interesting thing about the Globe is there tends to be a lot of cross-over with the science fiction writer community, and their "reporters".

Oddly enough, the Becks and Palins of the world haven't been bragging that the Globe is now covering their cause celebre.

The funniest thing about this is that World Net Daily isn't quite so smart, and they actually are bragging that the Globe has picked up the story.

What's even better is that Whirled Nut Daily is upset that they aren't getting credit. In fact it seems a lot of "news" "personalities" in this part of the "journalism" world are fighting over who can claim credit. Next time your mother sends you a ridiculous email forward and you hesitate before replying all with the inevitably embarrassing Snopes rebuttal, think of the people who think the Globe is news because they've never been confronted with the idea of verifying sources.
