Many on Left Fall for Onion-esque Article
So this morning, my wife shows me her Facebook page and it's filled with comments from her friends on the left, incredulous over Congressman Akin and his new proclamation.
According to the article, Akin claimed that breast milk was a cure for homosexuality.
At least a dozen of her friends shared the article on their Facebook pages. Twitter was buzzing as well. There's just one little problem ...
... it's a fake.
What's even more hilarious is that MSNBC ran with it for a short time.WARNING: This post may contain material offensive to those who lack wit, humor, common sense and/or supporting factual or anecdotal evidence.

Gotta love snafu's like that. Just shows you how big time media is more interested in headlines.When it comes to quarterbacks, don't pay attention to stats; pay attention to guys who make crucial plays at crucial times. -Gil Brandt
