At least that was the stunning announcement made yesterday by Lynne Cheney, who said that the very white vice president from Wyoming is in fact the eighth cousin of Obama, the Senate's only African American member. She said she discovered the link, traced back to a Huguenot who figured prominently in Maryland history, while researching her latest book.

As a man who grew up in the great state of Ohio, it sickens me to see such ignorance and hatred. Interestingly enough, I was surprised to see al jazeera in Ohio.
This election will have ramifications of epic proportions. History will dedicate a whole chapter to it, i am sure. Hopefully, for these twisted people, their ignorance will not be linked.

What I find disturbing is this:
Many people here are calling the folks in that video ignorant, uneducated rednecks. They do appear to be such.
YET these "sophisticates" here have access to a high-speed internet, with
unlimited research tools at their disposal, but STILL haven't discerned that Obama is JUST ANOTHER
liar, con-man, hypocrite, and professional career politician\lawyer\lobbyist\corporate shill
at the trough.
Who's more ignorant?
Wake up, people...say NO to both parties. Be independent.
It's over their damn heads, Frank. Their fear shrinks the world to the size of nothing but their own lives. It blinds them to anything beyond their own houses.

Do you know what Black Liberation Theology teaches?
Obama spent 20 years in a church that preached:
Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community.
If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him.
The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community ...
Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy.
What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal.
Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.
Obama's close friend, pastor Wright, preached this doctrine, in the church where Obama raised his family.
