Crazy Obama myths

Dumb? Fascist? The Anti-Christ?

Salon dissects a dozen myths about Barack Obama, who is one scary dude for any or all of the following reasons: he’s a foreign-born Muslim, who is so dim he’s dependent on a teleprompter, which hasn’t stopped him from trying to build a master race, when he isn’t closing Republican-owned Chrysler dealerships, or forming a Nazi-style Hitler Youth. These are the sorts of things on his socialist—or is it fascist—agenda. Or, what the hell, why stop there? Maybe he has the Book of Revelations up on that teleprompter and maybe he is the Anti-Christ and these are the End Times. So, if his first 100 days in office were action packed, wait for Day 666.
