Karen Russell at the PuffingTons Host says the Right is Swiftboating Obama.
Ugh. I’ve said before how much I hate that term.
So, essentially, Karen says the Right is behind spreading the “false rumor” that Barak Obama studied in a madrassa when he was young.
Karen offers no proof to counter the claim. But nonetheless, the rumor is “false” through some inherent standard. She says Obama’s books don’t say madrassa, so therefore it wasn’t one. Regardless of the fact that Jakarta is crawling with them, and that madrassas provide some of the best education (with a bit of Jihadism) children get in that part of the world (and they do it for free).
She quotes from Insight Magazine who ran the article. But she doesn’t believe them when they report the Clinton Presidential Committee was behind it. She actually believes it was Rush Limbaugh, even though they quote from the Insight article! Somehow they sent the article into the future so they could read from it later.
Obama’s a victim. He has to be, thinks Russell. He’s a black man running for President, so the evil Righties have to be smearing him! Even though it’s much more likely it’s one of his political opponents.
But I won’t stop Karen when she’s busy setting her hair afire in a fit of absolute insanity.
