Singer Moby Falls For Phony Reagan Quote

Singer Moby on his myspace page posts the following:

sorry, another sort of political blog. But this one was too good not to share!
Category: News and Politics


"A moment I've been dreading. George(Bush senior) brought his ne're-do-well son(George W Bush, our president...)around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one(Jeb) who lives in Florida. The one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40
and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at The New
Republic and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or
something. That looks like easy work."

-- Ronald Reagan, from his recently published diaries.

Of course, the quote is false as shown by snopes

What's astounding is the comments on Moby's post. Several commentators fall for it, someone finally comes along and points out that the quote is a phony, and yet, more commentators come along and still fall for it AFTER a few others have already pointed out that the quote is a fake.
