Under the Radar

Chain letters full of various hoaxes relating to President Obama continue to circulate. This business about Barack Obama moving the location of "In God We Trust" (something which was voted on by a Republican Congress and approved by President Bush) managed to grab the attention of Sarah Palin. Elsewher, and completely unbeknownst to me until yesterday, chain letters falsely claim that the White House Christmas Tree has been renamed the "Holiday Tree".

If I had a degree in philosophy perhaps I could put together a story about mythos versus logos, but as it is I just see these email stories and think of the random white folks they show in By The People and their skepticism about Obama.
