How I Deal With It

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 15.678% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

I just got a chain email  – “PLEASE FORWARD WITHOUT COMMENT,” it says, or thinking presumably, because it details a thoroughly fictional Meet The Press on September 7, 2008 where Obama claims the flag “conveys a war-like message” and heartily promises, if elected, to try to change the National Anthem to “I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing”  and then admits that he and Michelle have attended “several” flag-burning ceremonies.
I could argue with this dude, I guess.  Explain that two months before the election, this certainly would have made headlines. Or that despite this faux-concern, Obama has yet to attempt to legislate our National Anthem to “Good Vibrations.”
Or I could just send him this:

Dear Random Dude:
I thought you should know that some spam program has evidently compromised your account and is sending out moronic, factless dribble like this to millions of people who couldn’t care less.
