Snopes “debunks” the “myth” that any Fannie Mae advisers had anything to do with Barack Obama campaign had an/Freddie “myth.” Must be seen to be disbelieved. Coming next:

This particular email is wrong on every count. The Army has barracks, but no one named “Barrack” is running for office, nor have we been enable to locate any church in Chicago called “Trinity Lutheran” or any preacher named Hezekiah. Mr. Obama has not been a member of any church for more than 20 years. “God damn the USA” appears to be cynical take-off on a popular song by Lee Greenwood called “God Bless the USA,” whose message is pro-American, not anti-American as the email suggests.
