Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

And So It Begins...

From the Right Wing Howler Monkey Media Chorus that brought you "Aaaiieee!! It's Barack Obama's Scary Black Preacher Who Is Black and Racist and Hates America!" it's "Michelle Obama: Traitor or America-Hater?" The Republicans HAVE to make the campaign about Barack Obama being a Muslim, a communist a homosexual or possibly all three and French to boot, because if it's about the issues, they're toast.

UPDATE: Peggy Noonan (of all people) writes the GOP's obituary. I have to say, "butts in the butter" is one of the better faux home-spun analogies I've read this year.

UPDATE 2: Mike Huckabee is an asshole. Film at eleven.

UPDATE 3: And Cong. Tom Davis is an idiot.

UPDATE 4: And Michael Medved is a moron of cosmic proportions. Also, a racist, pandering tool.

I dunno, Crank, I'm not a Republican. I'm embarrassed to say that I know three people personally who think Obama is a Muslim. Two of them are Democrats.
All three of them are co-workers of immediate family members, not super close personal friends. And we already knew two of them were not real edjamacated.

It's the Hillary campaign that has a page attacking Obama for what he said in kindergarten on Hillary's official site. How far from the issues can you get?

I am not aware if McCain has such a page on his site, but scorn to him if he has one too.

Also, don't forget that the Clinton campaign had a chain email attacking Obama for "being a Muslim". One statement from the campaign email was "The Muslims have said they plan on destroying the U.S. from the inside out, what better way to start than at the highest level - through the President of the United States , one of their own!!!!"

Both valid points; stupidity IS non-partisan. My main argument, though, is that McCain will HAVE to make this kind of innuendo the centerpiece of his campaign because the public has switched overwhelmingly to the Democratic position on nearly all the issues.
