First, the national sideshow of Anthony Weiner, who claimed for more than ten days that his Twitter account had been hacked by some mysterious malefactor, perhaps the notorious right wing conspiracy of Hillary's day, intent on either destroying him or playing an innocent prank.
Now, Barack Obama is claiming that his very signature was hacked fifteen years ago to validate a survey which his official spokesman now claims Obama didn't sign. Included in the survey was a question whether then-candidate for state senate Obama favored gay marriage. Statement number 6, on the same page as the signature, says in plain print
I favor legalizing same-sex marriage, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.His signature is bold and black. The graphic of the signature has been floating around in news stories for nearly 15 years, and now White House communications directors Dan Pfeiffer says it's not Obama's signature on the form.
The gay rights folks are beside themselves, but heck, they're already bought and paid for. I mean, who are they going to turn to, Michelle Bachman?
Give me a break.
