"Where is this confusion coming from?" you're kidding, right? You have to be kidding.

More nonsense from Swampland about the "Obama is a Muslim" foolishness,  this time voiced by an actual member of the Liberal Media Elite:
Where is this confusion coming from? I asked [Alan Cooperman of the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life], who suggested this explanation: "Part of what's going on here may be that there's been a relative--especially compared to the previous president--absence of information from the president himself and from the White House about his personal religion and his practice of his personal faith. In the relative vacuum of information, suggestions from the president's critics have been able to gain more currency and uncertainty is rising." I think that's about right. Given how frequently and personally Obama spoke about his Christian faith during the Democratic primaries and the 2008 general election, his relative silence since moving into the White House has been puzzling.
You know, I am old enough to remember when the very fact that John F. Kennedy had a religious affiliation was almost enough to disqualify him for running for the White House. Now it seems any candidate who does not display his religious affiliation on his sleeve and talk about it endless is...well, suspect.

Aside for the terrible, terrible thing that says about where this country is (I almost typed "is going," but that ship has sailed), let's at least be honest.

More than anything else, the issue here is that the current president of the United States is black.

Has been from the beginning and is now, and until the rest of us, the majority of us really, step up and face down the assholes, that is what it will remain.

And all of us will reap the whirlwind.
