April Fool’s Day Is a Right-wing Conspiracy

I loved this email from a very angry woman re this post:

Your story about Obama’s gift to the Queen is sheer lies – and all the right wing pigs are e-mailing it all over the world…guess that makes you happy

In return the queen and her husband, Prince Philip, gave the Obama’s a signed portrait of themselves.>>
