Obama Hoax Chump of the Day: Paul Wilson, With Bonus Baloney
Paul Wilson explains at his Black Hole Next Door blog that he became a conservative after a neighbor borrowed some stuff of his and then had the gall to die. He also is the latest to pass on the untrue “information” on two different websites that President Barack Obama registered as a foreign student at Occidental College. The claim was debunked well over a year ago, as anyone making a simple search will find out. This alone makes Paul Wilson our Chump of the Day.
But wait, there’s more! Mr. Wilson earns our special Certificate of Unmitigated Gall for adding the following prelude to the top of the canned cut-and-paste hoax job:
This information from Occidental College was released TODAY, May 4, 2010. I checked with Snopes and it IS true. He got financial aid as a foreign student. The request for his transcript was released in compliance with an order from the Superior Court of the State of California.
You know that’s not true, right? A simple actual check of Snopes will show the opposite to be the case. But this message isn’t meant for people like you and me who actually check facts, require evidence and live in the Reality-Based Community. The message is meant for chumps.
Present ARMS! All SALUTE! Paul Wilson, Chump of the Day, with CERTIFICATE!
