Hey, did you hear this stuff? It's all over the "internets".
Right Wingers are fervently passing along juicy tidbits of shocking, just shocking, examples of liberal evil committed by Barack Obama. The big conservative corporate media goons and their kindred bloggers are out in force with a concerted effort to smear Obama.
Gosh, those sanctimonious, self proclaimed God-fearing conservative types would never lie, would they? Isn't that against some rule in a book somewhere? Isn't there something about lying in that dusty book they rarely read because it doesn't have pictures in it? There's also some crazy stuff about loving your fellow human beings, but that part isn't worth their trouble reading. Yet they love to whip it out and thump it on the table when they want to demonize some liberal.
Well, maybe they are liars as well as hypocrites. Let's see if we can get to the truth. To borrow a phrase from the book they use for their persecutory and political ends, perhaps they can be judged by the fruit they bear.
Here's a few samples of some of the fruits they offer.
Barack Obama is a Muslim. Barack Obama attended a radical madrassa. Senator Obama was sworn into the US Senate using the Koran.
Barack Obama won't put his hand over this heart during the pledge of allegiance. Barack Obama won't say the pledge.
And what about his wife, Michelle? According to Rush Limbaugh a tape exists of Michelle Obama using the word “whitey” from the pulpit of Trinity United.
So, the simple equation we face is this. If these statements are not true, then somebody's sinning against their own professed theology.
I'd like to share a link to a site that takes these accusations and holds them to the light.

I guess that would make our Righties gone wrong not only liars and hypocrites, but sinners as well. And here we thought only those darn liberals were the sinners!
