The Claim:

Michelle Obama didn't really disrespect the flag on September 13th, 2011 -- she was actually saying "amazing how they fold that flag."

The Truth:

The spin machine was out quickly on this one: after many bloggers watched in horror as Michelle Obama said "all this for a flag?" on live TV, deaf people came to the consensus that she was probably just saying "amazing how they fold that flag."

This one just takes common sense. Who would you trust -- educated bloggers, including James S. Robbins of the Washington Times -- or some deaf people, who have no political experience, a wide range of education, and may be Obama supporters?

File this one in the "yeah, right" category. We're on to you, Michelle.
