In the grand tradition of politicians getting hoodwinked by parody websites, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was tricked by the military’s answer to The Onion, The Duffel Blog.

The Duffell Blog is a fake military news site, with headlines like “Army Spends $100M On Piece of Equipment That Doesn’t Do Anything,” “DoD Announces Casualty In War on Christmas” and “Syria to Host Iraq War Reenactors.”

This is too much! These neanderthals are totally willing to believe any crackpot or satirical story that fits their warped narrative!
