    Obama is a "half-breed muslin"

    Really!

    Somehow, an "insult" just doesn't work when one can't spell very well, and when it reveals more of the "stupidity" of the person who wrote it.

    http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/us/2008/09/30/pallone.obama.sign.cf13

    Nevertheless, the sign is still hysterically funny. It is as silly as calling Mickey Mouse a "soldier of satan".

    Zz.

    I think in this case, it's more like calling Mickey Mouse a "soldier of Satin". ;P

    I thought muslin was a thin insubstantial cheap white material. It's normally used for disposable backdrops and scenery but you have to be careful though - it is highly flammable and often dangerously bursts into flames at the wrong moment.
    In surgery it's used to wrap around old weak blood vessels to support them and prevent aneurysms.

    No political jokes there unfortunately.

    It really does make one wonder if voting rights should have a lower IQ limit. This sort of thing is so pathetic that it makes me feel ill.

    You have to wonder about the "intelligence" of people who forward emails blasting Obama for the views of his Protestant minister, then switch-hit to forwarding emails, blasting him for being a Muslim. Disconnect, anyone?

    All of you misunderstood the sign. Of course you can breed Muslins.

    No one smart enough to run for President would wear a Muslin dress.

    Re: Obama is a "half-breed muslin"

    IMO, people like this, and there are plenty of them, can mostly be explained by one simple fact: Obama is the wrong color.

    I have been noticing lately that many people who will not vote for Barack [I mean people that I encouter and talk with - in particular some members of my own family - and not necessarily anyone here] can't give one reason for it that stands the test of truth. So I don't think there is much of a hidden racial bias against Obama. I think people who are racist tend to admit up front that they won't support Obama, they just lie about the reasons why. It appears that many are even highly compelled to spread nonsense like the idiot linked in the op.

    Being a half breed muslin is probably better than being a poly-ester. :uhh:

    It's really not just Obama though. If you ask people why they don't support McCain, you also get a lot of odd answers that have nothing to do with reality (well, before Palin came on board anyway :rolleyes:). It's really scary how many people just vote by who they think looks more like a candidate and have no idea about the issues.

    Or they assume that the farm lobby, the oil industry, the gun lobby, the $ETHNIC$ lobby, Wall St etc will set all the policies so you are only voting for how looks best on TV anyway.
