Don’t let what happened to @BenLaBolt (Who?) happen to you.

Short version: this Tweet went out:

…which caused former Obama press secretary (and current nothing in particular) Ben LaBolt to respond:

Alas, if LaBolt had simply done this, he would have discovered that Jack Kimble is a fake Congressman with a fake website.   Which frankly robs the whole thing of pretty much any oomph that it might have had otherwise.  But it is funny to watch everybody screw that up!

Things to take away from the entire episode?

  1. Always double-check: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
  2. True, this happens to everybody.  So does the resulting mockery.
  3. Guess we now know why Obama took LaBolt’s advice.
