A friend at work sent this bumper sticker to me today via another friend who was stopping by my office. At least someone gets it.

The prevailing attitude in this red state is that one candidate wants to help some of the brown people via immigration reform and the other candidate is brown people. Who do we vote for? No one is for the white people.

Last week at work someone told me that Obama's a Muslim and if he's elected, then it's a sign of the apocalypse. I calmly stated that Obama is not a Muslim and left it at that. Meanwhile, I wanted to curl into a fetal position and moan.

I'm not really that in the know about Revelations but apparently there's some section being interpreted as when Muslims come to power, it's a sign of the apocalypse. So if Obama is portrayed as a Muslim, it feeds into this whole paranoia about the end of the world.

God, I've had the Muslim/Not a Muslim debate so many times recently. For some reason, people latch onto wildly inaccurate rumor so much more easily. That very notion hurts my head on occasion.

Having Hussein as his middle name just heightens the suspicions about Obama for the poorly informed. And Fox News and their ilk are stoking the fire with all they've got to play up what makes him appear different. Sometimes I think it will be a miracle if he gets elected knowing how backwards and gullible people are in this country.
