    Judy Wallman, a professional genealogical researcher, discovered that
    Hillary Clinton's great-great uncle, Remus Rodham, was hanged for horse
    stealing and train robbery in Montana in 1889.

    The only known photograph of Remus shows him standing on the Gallows. On
    the back of the picture is this inscription: "Remus Rodham; horse thief,
    sent to Montana Territorial Prison 1885, escaped 1887, robbed the Montana
    Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton detectives, convicted and hanged in
    1889.

    Judy e-mailed Hillary Clinton for comments. Hillary's staff of professional
    image adjusters sent back the following biographical sketch:

    "Remus Rodham was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory. His business
    empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and
    intimate dealings with the Montana railroad. Beginning in 1883, he devoted
    several years of his life to service at a government facility, finally
    taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, he was a
    key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective
    Agency. In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held
    in his honor when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed."

    And THAT is how it's done, folks!

    Who cares, it's funny and that is truly the way they think. If it isn't true it ought to be.

    And....some people would not recognize the truth if it slapped them in the face!

    Politics is not about the truth...it's about "Perception".

    If you read it and believed it was true, you're an idiot. I didn't need snopes to tell me it was made up.

    It was funnier than heck though.

    How about this spin:

    The Russians and the Americans each had a great racehorse. They decided to hold a big race to decide once and for all who was the best.

    The day of the race the American horse won hands-down.

    Next day the American papers headlines read:

    U.S. HORSE WINS GREAT RACE!

    In the Russian papers their headlines read:

    RUSSIAN HORSE FINISHES SECOND, U.S. HORSE NEXT-TO-LAST!
