Obama and Religion: Who Cares, Stupid People?

If you are a birther and you are reading this, I want you to know that you are an idiot. John McCain was supposedly born in the Panama Canal Zone and we could have started a great birther movement based on the rumor that he was born in a hospital right outside the Canal Zone borders. What a lost opportunity for the left.

Now, President Obama's faith or religious beliefs come up again because tea-baggers can't seem to figure out how to live with the fact we elected an African-American president. Obama could be Muslim, but he isn't. He could be Jewish, but he isn't. He said he's Christian, but that doesn't seem enough.

When Reagan was president he didn't go to church because he said he didn't want to disrupt the congregation. No one questioned it because he was St. Reagan, and white and wrinkly and all, so that was totally cool.

I hope President Obama is like most people I know—they may identify as Christian, Jew or Muslim, but they don't know what they really believe. They try to do the right thing anyway. Or they are atheists and just want people to use reason and a little more social justice to figure out our world's problems.

Or wouldn't it be cool if President Obama was actually Halk Kar from the planet Thoron, which is in the same solar system as Krypton? A little less cool than Superman, but still he’s Superman’s brother.
