Opening Up A Can of Whup-Ass

My friend Liesl has got her rantipanties on today, and she's on a roll.

Don't you just hate when people forward ignorant/racist/hateful emails to their 50 closest friends without ever checking the validity of them?

Passing on the stupid, so to speak?

I usually counter with a link back to snopes, if I'm feeling benevolent.

Liesl deconstructs this one, and kicks some asshat.
Stop by and give her a holler!

Can we really believe anything, good OR bad, that the press throws out to us? All we have are opinions and we just have to weed through them and hope we made the right choices. Politics have come down to who has the money to stay in the ring the longest and that just ain't right.

I received a similar email weeks back. I contend that no one believes them but my husband thinks I'm wrong. Where do I buy Whup Ass. It's good to have on hand in the pantry

Oh dear. I got this from my mother I think and I hit delete. This was from a woman who gets her "news" from AM Talk radio and thinks Rush is just the bestest. I must have been adopted. I may print out this blog and mail it to my crazy mama.

Emails as such, can send me right into a sour mood as well! Especially when the person sending doesnt even read it and uses that as an excuse! Dude read the thing first! Geeesh....

The email sounds pretty wack.


But then again, there's something not quite right about the Obama's either.....
