    Nobody should believe you based on this post. It's the Internet, for goodness sake.

    •  Yeah, pretty much (0+ / 0-)

      exactly this.

      Look, we are in a campaign season.  There will be lies, disinformation, myths, and misunderstandings.  They will be thick on the ground and in the air.  Over and over we see how the dKos community is very quick to believe things that they want to believe, without proof.  One recent meta incident showed we could be fooled (or some of us, I wasn't one of them) by a regular diarist and "trusted user" with a good backstory that turned out to be false.  Just today, a rumor about Paul Ryan supposedly insider trading made it to the rec list, and then had to be removed when that was proven to be a false accusation, which does no good for dKos' credibility as a source of information.

      You could be -- and probably are -- telling the truth. On the other hand, Morris looks like a hundred other obese, middle-aged white Republican operators I've seen in my life, and you could be mistaken.  I swear I can't tell them apart on TV -- all middle-aged white Republicans look alike to me, to paraphrase a famous sentiment.

      So maybe it happened, maybe it didn't.  Doesn't really matter except that this diary made the rec list, and the rec list is becoming increasingly untrustworthy.

    •  And what exactly will you do differently (3+ / 0-)

      because you don't believe the diarist than you would if you did?  Besides posting a comment saying you didn't believe it?  If it is a made up story, it's about as harmless a made up story as I can imagine.  Big whup.
