The Manchurian Candidate

Another day, another wild article about Barack Obama being a "secret Muslim." My first response is: So what?
Maybe it is because I live in the Pacific Northwest, the most un-churched area of the country, and as Mencken put it; news of my excommunication would bother me less than my morning Katzenjammer. I could care less what religion Obama is, as long as his agenda doesn't involve replacing the constitution with it.
Upon examining the "secret Muslim" lunacy, just how dumb do they think we are? (Please don't answer that, I really don't want to know) When the old Soviet Union sent a spy into the US, they made great pains to give him a plausable identity, trained him in American customs, literature, language, etc. The object was to pass him off as a typical American.
There are special schools in India to train call center operators to lose their accents, so Americans think the person on the other end of the line is from Iowa.
If a radical Islamic sect planned on placing a mole into the highest levels of American government, would they choose a black man named Barack? It's too obvious.
Desperate times call for desperate measures, and the right wing is becoming increasingly desperate to cling to power even as the results of their bankrupt policies become apparent to all but the most rabid of their followers. They're tossing out everything, hoping something will stick.
