I just read the thread on the "Tree of Liberty" forum BrianB linked to, and - surprisingly - about half of the posters there did read the article on snopes.com or even did their own research and found that snopes.com was right.

On the other hand:

Comment: RE: Kangaroo Court

You Lied....Or you didn't follow up throughly. Either way, you reputation
as a truth finder has been perminately tarnished.

http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/birthers/kagan.asp

"The plain fact is that NONE of the nine entries cited....Challenging
Barack Obama's elegibility...."

The very first one I looked up-
http://www.supremecourt.gov/Search.a...es/09-8857.htm

All have petitions to Obama denied with Kagan as Solicitor General,
Counsel of Record.

Why not look up why he's spending hunderd of thousands, if not millions of
dollars of the tax payer's money to hide his birth certificate - instead
of simply posting it on his web site for all to see?

Comment: WND article about Elena Kagan and Barak Obama dockets. The
information you have posted stating that there were no such cases as
claimed by WND and the examples you gave are blatently false. I went
directly to the Supreme courts website, typed in Obama Kagan and
immediately came up with all of the dockets that WND made reference too.
It is disgusting that you too have bought into the Obama cover up. WHY DO
YOU LET THIS HAPPEN? Why does he get away with destroying the foundation
of this country?

But you have to admire the tenacity (if not the intelligence) of the poster there who, after being repeatedly shown evidence that none of the referenced docket items was about Obama's eligibility, said:

No, probably not. Unlike legislation, you normally don't tack on other issues to unrelated lawsuits.

If you really want to depress your self do what Scott Adams suggests. He says every time he hears someone make a completely unintelligible argument or statement he can't help but mentally ad... "... and then he voted."

Try it with some of the comments in this thread. It really is very terrifying.

Comment: http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/birthers/kagan.asp

YOU CLAIM THE ABOVE SITE AS FALSE WHEN IN FACT IT IS TRUE.
AND THE TRUTH IS FOUND AT:

http://www.supremecourt.gov/Search.a...es/09-8857.htm

I'VE RECEIVED MANY EMAILS IN THE PAST CLAIMING THAT YOUR INFORMATION IS
OFTEN NOT TRUE AND I'VE ALWAYS DEFENDED YOU.

HOWEVER; THIS IS ONE TIME I'M QUESTIONING YOU'RE BEING TRUTHFUL IN THIS
CASE. ELANA KAGAN DID DEFEND OBAMA AND I BELEIVE SHE WAS PUT IN THE
SUPREME COURT FOR DOING SO. THE INFORMATION IS ON THE DOCKETS...OR DO YOU
SUGGEST THAT THE SUPREME COURT DOCKETS ARE ALSO FALSE?

A REPLY WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

Actually, it seems that was a comment by someone else in response to Mr. Adams on his blog.

Although it's possible this person was quoting an earlier post by Adams, but from the responses I don't believe so.

Adams himself suggested this response:

Comment: According to your website the Obama/Kegan link is false. I
received the following in an e-mail today. Is it false also?

Comment: Is the below true? And if so, are you at Snopes complicit? If so,
shame on you. At least, as much shame a leftists in an amoral universe can
muster

-================================================== ====

More utter and complete filth by the most vile, fraudulent and disgusting
Congress and administration ever. And for your friends who think Snopes is
the gospel, they might want to think again. Yes, they get most things
right, but not all. And it is still an open question as to how truly
independent they are.


To Snopes:

Re WND article about Elena Kagan and Barack Obama dockets. The
information you have posted stating that there were no such cases as
claimed by WND and the examples you gave are blatently false. I went
directly to the Supreme courts website, typed in Obama Kagan and
immediately came up with all of the dockets that WND made reference too.
I have long suspected that you really slant things but this was
really shocking. Thank You, I hope you will be much more truthful in the
future

Comment: What's the story, are you lying to the web-public?

I went to Snopes to check this out and they said it was false and there
were no such dockets so I

googled the supreme court, typed in Obama Kagan, and guess what? Yep you
got it. Snopes lied. Everyone of those dockets are there.

Obama Kagan

The real questions are: What did snopes know, and when did he know it.

Comment: Kagan and Obama Case # 09-724 filed on 4/26/2010 lists her as
Attorney of Record. Plaintive is Real Truth About Obama. You guys don't
do your homework, or are bias. Which is it?

Comment: I have suspected for sometime that you folks were not being
totally honest and unbiased with your facts, however I was always able to
give you the benefit of the doubt. Now that it has been verified that you
are a left leaning organization,I can no longer trust you folks. You know,
it's a real shame that in this day and age with the internet and its vast
resources, citizens cannot even trust those who claim to be without bias.

I think I'm smelling an opportunity here....

Just as the alleged liberal bias of Wikipedia led to the founding of Conservapedia, and the liberal slant of the Bible gave rise to the new conservative Bible translations, perhaps I should start the Conservative Urban Legend Truth (CULT) page. Putting it together should be easy enough -- just go through the snopes site, find every article that has a "liberal bias" (i.e., doesn't reinforce conservative talking points) and "debunk" it (which should be easy; for cites I can just link to the sources snopes has already debunked). Set it up, and wait for the right-wing advertising money to roll in!

Or, I could just post an ad on craigslist saying I'll take it up the ass for cash....that seems more honest somehow...
