Quote from NY Times: one woman's thoughts Obama's religion

There is an interesting piece in the NY Times about the demographics of the people who identify themselves with the "Tea Party". There were some surprises in there for me, but much of it is as you would expect. (Basically, they are mostly white men who feel that the government is helping the poor more than it is helping the middle class and rich. To which I say "Duh! That's because the poor are the ones who need help!!" It's like complaining that ambulances spend too much time helping people who have been in car accidents and had heart attacks and not enough time driving people who are in perfect health!!)

Anyway, that's not why I'm posting this here. I just thought y'all might be interested in this quote:

I just feel hes getting away from what America is, said Kathy Mayhugh, 67, a retired medical transcriber in Jacksonville. Hes a socialist. And to tell you the truth, I think hes a Muslim and trying to head us in that direction, I dont care what he says. Hes been in office over a year and cant find a church to go to. That doesnt say much for him.

Right. Because you know those people who don't go to church are so un-American.
