Gov Haley Story Not True

One of my favorite Governors is being trashed by a false rumor:

COLUMBIA -- The Internal Revenue Service determined last fall that an investigation of the Sikh Religious Society where Gov. Nikki Haley's parents are leaders was not warranted, according to a letter the IRS provided the Governor's Office Friday.

"After further consideration of your organization, we have determined that an investigation is not warranted at this time for the above tax period," the letter states.

"We did not conduct an examination for the above period."

Clearly an example of anti-Sikh bigotry -- what century is this again? It couldn't be party affliation...

... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand the lie is halfway around the world. Where did we put those shoes?

52.8% of the voting population in her state will remember it - the lie, not the retraction. The point was never to tell the truth; the point was to damage. If you don't believe me, look at the number of people who still believe that Sarah Palin said she can see Russia from her house.

And it's true! I can see Russia right there. Next to that lie. The one that's halfway around the world.
