"There are two motives behind this - racism and money."
They are giving the film away, so the money thing kind of rings hollow. And the racism charge makes a monkey of the author. That's the nonsense you spout when you've got nothing.
"'Dreams From My Real Father' claims that the President's family history is an elaborate lie."
Well, Champ's first act as president was to seal all his personal records. Everything. Makes it kind of hard to prevent people from speculating. It's natural to assume that if it were all good news he would publish it, not seal it.
Then there is the obligatory sidebar with lurid facts about the guy who made the film, because the one thing the press will investigate is anyone who criticizes or embarrasses the Champ.
Article is a complete waste. Haven't seen the DVD, but there are picture posted and people can make up their own minds about whether it's Champ's mom or not.
Most rural Americans would vote for Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over US President Barack Obama, Iran's semi-official Fars News Agency claimed Friday, citing what it said were the results of a Gallup poll. Once they got those Ahmedinejad phones they were his for life...
According to the Fars report, 77 percent of rural Caucasian American voters would rather spend time with Ahmadinejad than Obama, and would vote for the former in an election.
However, if you can't say something nice about a person some juicy gossip will go well... the Fars news agency gleaned its information from a real farce news agency: The Onion.
The Onion, a satirical, fake news outlet that describes itself as "America's finest news source," published the comedic and factually incorrect poll result on Monday.
According to The Onion's report (paywall), a Gallup poll found that 60 percent of Americans "at least respected that Ahmadinejad doesn't try to hide the fact that he's Muslim."
One fictional respondent told the paper that "he would much rather go to a baseball game or have a beer with Ahmadinejad, a man who has repeatedly denied the Holocaust and has had numerous political prisoners executed, than spend time with Obama."
The Fars news report copied the entire report verbatim, but omitted the remark about Holocaust denial and execution of political prisoners, and neglected to mention that the poll and Onion report were a comedic fabrication.
Fars has recently been criticized for publishing reports of questionable authenticity. In June it published "an interview" with Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi in which he claimed to seek a strategic alliance with Iran. Morsi's office said later he had given no interview.
Will Tracy, the editor of the Onion, released a statement joking that Fars was a subsidiary of the Onion. "They have acted as our Middle Eastern bureau since the mid 1980s, when the Onions publisher, T. Herman Zweibel, founded Fars with the government approval of the late Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khomeini. The Onion freely shares content with Fars and commends the journalists at Irans Finest News Source on their superb reportage."
At least Mahmoud is up front about his hatred. What I dislike most about BHO is his smiling pretense of being on our side.

Dinner Jacket is less of a threat to flyover country than Obama and more of a threat to do something that might effect Obama's urban base.
In Florida this afternoon, Vice President Joe Foreign Policy Whiz Kid Biden The former Senator-for-Life from Delaware, an example of the kind of top-notch Washington intellect to be found in the World's Greatest Deliberative Body... reminded supporters that thanks to President B.O., they could now get colonoscopies without a co-pay.
During his speech, Biden reminded the audience that some of their Republican friends would distort Obama's record on Medicare.
"Everyone knows, everyone in this room knows that President B.O. has increased the benefits available to people on Medicare by the action he took," Biden said. "You are now able to go get a wellness exam, and guys, if you conclude you need a colonoscopy because of the feeling you had or you need a breast health examination, you don't have to pay a co-pay for that."
