Political Rumormongers Should Get Snopesed

I‘ve long been a proponent of the idea that Snopes.com should be required reading prior to forwarding chain letters in email, instant messenger, and so on.

Now, it should also be required reading for politicians, the media, bloggers, and anyone else talking about politics. I’ve heard more than one person criticize Barack Obama for refusing to make public his birth certificate because it would reveal him to have been born outside of America. Likewise, I’ve heard more than one person criticize Sarah Palin for bearing a rifle while bikini-clad with other gun lovers.

Turns out, unsurprisingly, both of those rumors are untrue.
