Yeah, its all bullshit.
I'm sure you've received the emails at some point: Forwarded so many times that the text is squeezed to the far right margin, forwarded from your family, or a well-meaning friend.

The campaign this morning unveiled a web site, www.fightthesmears.com, devoted to countering damaging material it deems false. The site features campaign responses to rumors and asks supporters to upload their address books to email those rebuttals to friends, family and colleagues.
Of course, most people either delete these multi-forwarded junk emails or verify the information through the Urban Legends Reference Page, Snopes.com.

"It's not enough to just know the truth, we have to be proactive and fight back," Obama campaign spokesman Tommy Vietor said.
