Barack Obama is Christian.  An untraceable email campaign, however, has sought to turn voters with anti-Muslim attitudes away from Obama by spreading the lie that he is Muslim. So not cool.

Politico published excerpts from the untruthful emails:

“Barack Hussein Obama has joined the United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim background,” warns an e-mail titled “Who Is Barack Obama,” that was circulating in South Carolina political circles this summer and sent to Politico by a South Carolina Democrat.

“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?”

“Please forward to everyone you know,” it ended.

The other widely forwarded e-mail is titled “Can a good Muslim become a good American” and answers that question in the negative, before concluding: “And Barack Hussein Obama, a Muslim, wants to be our president!!!”

I heard Hillary Clinton attended a radical Unitarian middle school were she was taught an extremist catechism that calls for a world-wide conformity to fugly pant suits, wild facial reactions, and well-rehearsed laugher.
