Brilliant insight from Jeffrey Goldberg:
Such a ridiculous question, is Obama a Muslim? Of course he’s not. He’s a Druid. But a Reform Druid. Meaning he only worships shrubbery.
I can’t believe this question is still being posed. Or that it was posed at all. Or that people seem to be missing the subtext of the question which is that being a Muslim is a bad, bad thing.
So 20% of Americans think Obama’s a Muslim? 20% of Americans also believe in UFOs and think that 9/11 was an inside job.
People will always believe in dumb and irrational things for the sake of the sensationalism that comes with “standing out”.
Enough, already. Let’s move on.
