Fox Nation Links the Onion

Fox Nation, i.e. Fox News, posted an article in their culture section titled: Frustrated Obama Sends Nation Rambling 75,000-Word E-Mail The title has been changed to “The Onion: Frustrated Obama Sends Nation Rambling 75,000-Word E-Mail.”

The problem? It was directly from the Onion.

The article uses two paragraphs from the Onion piece and is accompanied by a picture of Obama head in hand. It includes this gem:

The e-mail, which was titled “A couple things,” addressed countless topics in a dense, stream-of-consciousness rant that often went on for hundreds of words without any punctuation or paragraph breaks.

The internet found out and the comment section has turned into a battleground:

From user “44 is a traitor”, whose avatar is of George Washington

I imagine the left is all up in arms, because this fictional email, so clearly represents the truth, and it is too painful for them to acknowledge the content, so they fight its existence. A familiar pattern in their behavior.

Obozo The Azzclown can keep his e-mail no one is interested in what the clown has to say.

Man, conservatives are stupid! The Onion is a satirical news site, not real news. Its a joke news site, not unlike FOX News or AM radio.

No wonder the tea party took over the GOP, conservatives are dim wits who believe anything they are told as long as it seems to prosecute liberals.

GO drink some more kool aid you contards! LMFAO!!!!

From “gibbsdithers”

This is one document generated by this awful administration that, unlike the Healthcare Obama-ponzi, that should NOT be read. We don’t care.
