Weird rumor I just encountered about HRC
Advertisements [?]
Let me preface this by saying I absolutely do not believe this! It's so far out it's in "Vince Foster" territory. Ms Clinton chooses her words carefully, and is highly unlikely to go out of her way to insult a group of highly trained and often articulate professionals. The individual who posted it did not provide a link to back it up. It sounds like the usual right-way hatchet job. The swift-boating is obviously starting early this election season.

The message in its entirety, posted on a website frequented by nurses, was this: "mrs Clinton says Nurses are overpaid and under educated, she should try it sometime. DON'T VOTE FOR CLINTON" (I left the hideous grammar and outlandish capitalization intact, since those are often hallmarks that say "Made in Freeperville"). I also didn't let it pass, demanding links, and pointing out just how unlikely this assertion was was.

I'm not Hillary's greatest living fan, but crap like this is unspeakably vile! Are there any Clinton supporters here who could advise me of what to do if I encounter another message like this? Links that I could use to demolish it? I checked out Snopes first, of course, but the rumor appears very new - possibly made up on the spot by the jerk who posted it.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
