The Onion smears Appalachia

The Onion, a satirical news site, has smeared Appalachia by talking about Barack Obama's alleged "hillbilly half-brother," Cooter Obama, living in Booneville, in Owsley County, Kentucky. (Hat tip: Cyberhillbilly)

The stereotypes are so bad that I do not want to repeat them on this blog, but you can see the so-called satire by going here. While we had problems here in Appalachia over the years, the people and region of Appalachia have been blessed by God. Stereotyping a blessed people is a sin.

Your thoughts???
