I have been browsing the comments conservative-nuts have left concerning Obama's fictional background as a Muslim...who do they think they are convincing? It is clear he is not, and there is no evidence that he practices or ever has practiced Islam. Most of these urchins either use already debunked half-truths about his past, make up something, or my favorite, use their "gut" in writing these bogus lies.

Don't they know the only people they could possibly convince would have to be so racist and uneducated that they must already be republicans, thus voting for Mccain any way? I could talk about how I would rather be governed by the first 2 thousand people in California's telephone directory, than any conservatives' "gut", which is how people who can't spell "prejudice" or "lack of education" refer to their cognitive process...the type of mental process which leads to a failing economy and a mind-numbingly dumb war in Iraq.

I could talk about how invading Iraq after 9/11 is the rational equivalent to punching your little sister in the face after a stranger hits you with rock. Yet...there may be one way for conservatives to understand how absurd they sound, and who knows, they may be dumb enough to allow my little rumor campaign to stick to McCain...well, here goes nothing: John McCain is a secret Communist. You see, he joined the Air Force with the plan of destroying his 30 million dollar US airplane above North Vietnam so that he could join Ho Chi Minh's revolution. He outlined to top North Vietnamese commanders how best to conduct the war so that the U.S would eventually surrender. McCain lost us the Vietnam War on purpose to appease his Communist handlers, and now he has his little commie eyes set on our new war.

John McCain says "he doesn't know much about the economy" because he hates capitalism so much it pains him to discuss it. His plans are to hand over the U.S nuclear arsenal to Putin and acheive his dream of communist world domination. I mean, John McCain wasn't even born in America! What does that tell your "gut"? Nothing good I bet. If it seems far-fetched to construe the above lies from a few years a presidential candidate spent outside the country, than maybe you will understand why your attempts to paint an honorable American,(your future President, I might add) with your mindless bigotry will always fall flat. People in general are not as dumb as conservatives in specific. "The average american has always been a little bit above average." even if you are not. - William F. Buckley, the last thinking conservative. (1925-2008)
