Stupid hoax…what was he thinking?

Apparently the Obama thesis going around is a hoax…

The story was repeated on several blogs such as Atlas Shrugs, Jumping in Pools, Pajamas Media, and American Thinker.

An article posted on The Washington Independent website reports that the original source was meant to be a satire.

If you didn’t listen to Rush Limbaugh’s radio show today, you missed the news that an obscure blogger had gotten his hands on ten pages of Barack Obama’s college thesis, thanks to Joe Klein of Time magazine. Michael Ledeen had jumped on the news, publishing an excerpt that revealed how the president had “doubts” about the “so-called founders.” And Limbaugh ran with it.

The problem: It was a hoax, actually marked as a satire, as Klein blogged earlier today. Ledeen apologized.

Ah well, it did make for a good conspiracy.

    TO “MUSH LIMBRAIN” THE VERBAL TERRORIST AND THE ENEMY WITHIN: ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT I HOPE THAT THIS LATEST SCHEME OF YOURS WILL LEAD YOUR CAREER IN A DOWNWARD SPIRAL.

    AFTER READING SOME OF THE COMMENTS OF YOUR SUPPORTERS, YOU ARE A REAL THREAT TO THIS COUNTRY. MOST OF THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS, HOWEVER, ARE FROM INTELLIGENT, INFORMED PEOPLE WHO FIND YOU AS DANGEROUS AS I TO THE WELFARE AND TO THE SAFETY OF GOOD, LAW ABIDING AMERICAN CITIZENS.

    ALSO, TO THE SPONSORS: I WILL, PERSONALLY, BOYCOTT YOUR PRODUCTS AND SPREAD THE WORD. REMEMBER, THE “PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD!”
