I thought of this post a few minutes ago, when in another thread on this same Forum just had a post repeating that age-old Al Gore canard, so this bears a repost here and there... your corrections of the urban myths of Sarah Palin and her backyard views of Russia and the mythic "Obamaphone", I've no doubt that the story behind the Al Gore BS is just as interesting.Or you could just call them what they are: LifeLine phones.
That's the thing when this talkingpoint bullshit gets so much attention. It's only because nobody bothers to take the two minutes to verify before they start repeating it back to everyone they see as if it were fact. All it does is distract dumb people while smart people play them for chumps. You're either part of the problem or part of the solution.
Al Gore never claimed to have invented the internet.
Sarah Palin never said she could see Russia from her house.
There is no such thing as an Obamaphone.
It's the small lies that set up the big ones. Saddam had nothing to do with the Trade Center. 4400 dead sons and daughters.
