    Many on Left Fall for Onion-esque Article



    So this morning, my wife shows me her Facebook page and it's filled with comments from her friends on the left, incredulous over Congressman Akin and his new proclamation.

    According to the article, Akin claimed that breast milk was a cure for homosexuality.

    At least a dozen of her friends shared the article on their Facebook pages. Twitter was buzzing as well. There's just one little problem ...

    ... it's a fake.

    What's even more hilarious is that MSNBC ran with it for a short time.

    Gotta love snafu's like that. Just shows you how big time media is more interested in headlines.
