Rep. John Fleming taken in by Onion "Abortionplex" story

Rep. John Fleming (R-Louisiana) — who is smart enough to make incredibly personal decisions about your body, but is not quite sharp enough to pick out absurdist social satire — pretty much won the Internet today
In a Facebook status on Friday, Fleming alerted his followers to The Onion's May 18, 2011 article, "Planned Parenthood Opens $8 Billion Abortionplex" and wrote "More on Planned Parenthood, abortion by the wholesale."
