They have a nifty little "Truth-o-meter" to which they asses political statements as True, Mostly True, Half True, Barely True, False and "Pants-on-fire!". There is also an "Obameter" which judges whether the president has followed through on many of the claims he made while still on the campaign trail.

Just wondering if anybody else has checked it out and had time to judge the consistency of their reporting.

is it worth checking out? does it make fun of anyone? would i get some kind of laugh out of reading some of the things they post there?
