He silly...

Haven't you learned yet, Ben, that GOP zombie lies never die?

Ben Smith's Blog: Sutton family retracts Obama story -
This evening, a spokesman for Sutton's family, Kevin Wardally, e-mailed over a statement that (because there's absolutely no other evidence for the story, and much that contradicts it) seems to put the story to rest for good:
The information Mr. Percy Sutton imparted on March 25 in a NY1 News interview regarding his connection to Barack Obama is inaccurate. As best as our family and the Chairman's closest friends can tell, Mr. Sutton, now 86 years of age, misspoke in describing certain details and events in that television interview.

We regret this unfortunate incident and we ask good conscientious people to extend compassion and grace to Percy Sutton, a man who has served America in many capacities; an officer with the Tuskegee Airmen in World War II and as a public servant who was the first elected African-American Manhattan Borough President.
In a sane world, this would put the story to rest. But Ben, Ben (in my best Sam Jaffe as Dr. Zorba voice)... you must realize by now that the world is batshit crazy. And zombies... well, they take on a life of their own. By the way: did you hear that Obama's milkman's neighbor two houses down has a second cousin who accidentally bumped into the nephew of a friend of the guy who lived down the block from Huey Newton?
