|obama a muslim and his wife an atheist ; )|
Showing that the myth of Obama the radical Muslim terrorist "sleeper" is still alive and well, the Financial Times yesterday quoted a West Virginia voter as saying:
"I heard that Obama is a Muslim and his wife's an atheist," said Mr Simpson, drawing on a cigarette outside the fire station in Williamson, a coalmining town of 3,400 people surrounded by lush wooded hillsides.
A blogger at Gawker.com points out how incompatible these two rumors are:
Mr. Simpson, that does not even make sense. You think a secret radical Muslim would marry an atheist? Even if it was purely to piss off Christians? Sleeper agent jihadists are not known for their tolerance of Enlightenment principles!
