Proving you can't underestimate human stupidity, the latest conspiracy theory about the Obamas involves the White House Garden.....

http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/opinion/oped/bal-op.reimer22jun22,0,4725758.column

"It was in the comments posted to Garden Variety that this new conspiracy theory emerged.

"That garden was bought at a produce section and faked," wrote Clint Brown. "That is staged and you all know it!"

"That's what they do on every issue," wrote Mike A. "1) bait 2) switch 3) media says 'who cares.'"

"Vanderleun" said in the comment he posted on Garden Variety that the press knew the garden was fake but "they're just forbidden to say or report it."

An Internet search revealed the same skepticism elsewhere, on news feeds like the Drudge Report and on conservative "Obama-watch" blogs.

My own nephew (he is a Republican) sent me a text message saying, "There's no way those are the same plants. If they are, then I'm moving to D.C. and starting a farm and raking it in."


and

"I'd be laughing if this wasn't so scary.

There are people who believe President Barack Obama's Hawaiian birth certificate is forged. And those who are convinced he was schooled at an Indonesian madrassa and is a Muslim mole.

But a fake vegetable garden?

And the point of faking a vegetable garden would be ... what? To trick the American people into believing that the first family is eating nutritious food when they are really sneaking out for burgers?

Wait. The president already did that."
