  1. Steve Greene says:

    I didn’t actually remember the Ahmadinejad handshake, but this struck me as the sort of non-sense that might blow up on Fox news and Rush that I would’ve totally ignored. When asked to choose which was fake, I went with the Shiavo, because I didn’t remember that Congress actually passed legislation on the matter in a special session. I think I was trying too hard.

  2. My false one was about Katrina, and I got it right.
