That's good, because he doesn't have a Muslim background. His father was Muslim at one time, but had left the faith by the time Barack was born. Barack was never raised a muslim.

That's just a made up lie. Go here to watch him reciting the pledge during Senate opening sessions.

This is the stupidest argument out there against Obama. I loathe this American dependency on jingoistic pieces of "flair"; as if they are at all important or mean anything. By your logic, the first candidate to dress up like Uncle Sam is obviously the most patriotic. America's dependence on meaningless symbolism is a little sickening.

This may be the single greatest campaign idea I've heard in a long time. Instead of an "election" we could have an "Uncle Sam Look-Alike" contest. It be the same farce it is now anyways.

Harrison Bergeron for President, 2012!
