Political Spin

Got this in an Email


Judy Wallman, a professional genealogical researcher, discovered that Hillary Clinton's great-great uncle, Remus Rodham, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Montana in 1889. The only known photograph
of Remus shows him standing on the gallows. On the back of the picture is this

'Remus Rodham; horse thief, sent to Montana Territorial Prison 1885, escaped 1887, robbed the Montana Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton detectives, convicted and hanged in 1889.'

Judy e-mailed Hillary Clinton for comments. Hillary's staff of professional image adjusters sent back the following biographical sketch:

'Remus Rodham was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory His business empire grew to include acq uisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Montana railroad. Beginning in 1883, he devoted several years of his life to service at a government facility, finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency.
In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his
honor when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed.'

And THAT is how it's done folks!-----------GET READY!!!!-------

As a young man my grandfather and his brother had been to town to a dance and there had been a scuffle with another guy. All three were thrown out of the dance and so after drinking some amount of whiskey he and his brother went and got their horses and started the ride home. On the way out of town they see up ahead in the street a guy walking along wearing the same hat as the guy they had been fight and decide to rope him and drag him. so they spurred up their horses and as they went flying by him each dropped a noose over the guy. Well, they were dragging him just as fast as the horses would run when one of them noticed that the guy being drug had a star on his shirt pocket. They immediately took the ropes off their pommels and let them go and left out even faster.

My grandfather was greatly upset because that was a brand new braided horse hair lariat that he left on the sheriff.
