Today we learned that the big Republican/Rand Paul scoop on Chuck Hagel possibly being friends with some organization called "Friends of Hamas" turned out to be based on one guy's sarcastic quip that stupid people took seriously. The notable handicap of the group not actually existing has not, however, diminished the certainty of the Breitbart "reporters" as to how Hagel is probably secret BFFs with them, which is a damn impressive thing all the way around.

So anyway, here's some people laughing at them. Feel free to join in.

Today is a very sad day for us. Nobody believes we exist. But if you can't believe in a figment of your imagination what can you believe in?

And here I was wasting a lot of time trying to figure out if my end-of-year donation to #FriendsofHamas was tax-deductible.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
