Gotta give credit where it's due

Those rightwing nutjobs are dedicated in their smearing.

Barak Obama is now potentially disloyal because he A) wants to honor his father and B) is considered Muslim by some nebulous Arab street, an Arab street that Debbie Schlussel CLEARLY knows as well as anyone.

I thought trying to honor your father was both a commandment and a family value. I thought that Christianity accepted any and all converts so long as they appear sincere (and Obama certainly does, to the point of needling secularists like me) without question or qualification.

For those who would point out that Schlussel is Jewish and just one person, she's far from the only one making these ludicrous assertions. It's racism pure and simple (Obama comes from a Muslim background and is thus impure! JUST LOOK AT HIS NAME!) If you want to criticize Obama do it for his positions and his actions, not because of his name (which he could not control) or the religion of his forefathers, which is about as relevant as his astrological sign. This is some really low and dirty gutter shit.
