HERE’S ONE OF THOSE CRAZY FUCKING IDEAS I GET FROM TIME TO TIME

OK, let’s say you’re a right wing writer of words and you want to write something about Barack Obama’s parents and how they might have met and how that might somehow “prove” that they or he are/is communist.  Would it make sense for you to, oh I don’t know, DO SOME FUCKING RESEARCH INTO HOW THEY ACTUALLY MET INSTEAD OF PULLING A STORY OUT OF YOUR ASS?

Of course, there’s always the possibility that how they actually met doesn’t line up with your fantasy version of how it happened, which would, of course, ruin your entire thesis.

So, you do the laziest thing possible, which is to simply not bother to try to find out how they met and just go with your science fiction version of the Obamas’ first encounter.  It’s fun to play pretend, isn’t it?  That’s why small children do it. – [Link]
