CNN is on, and I can't hear it, but the headline says: 'Obama fights Muslim rumors, but tries not to offend Muslims.'

Um, it's not Obama's job to fight rumors. It's the job of the journalists to set the record straight. He's said he's a Christian. His daughters are raised in a Christian church. His pastor said he was Christian. What in the heck does the press even DO these days? They must seriously just surf the blogosphere and spit out whatever they see on exposeobama.com. Ugh. This is just another case of media hyper correction -- after getting scooped by the blogs time and time again, these fools on CNN and MSNBC treat everything on the internet as true until proven false. That is NOT how it's supposed to work.

And as for him trying not to offend Muslims, just... no. Y'all (CNN et. al) kept reporting the Muslim non-story to a point where Obama practically had to shout from the rooftops 'I AM NOT A MOOSLEM!!!' And now you have the nerve to 'worry' that he's offending Muslims? Two ignorant volunteers at a rally do not represent the campaign or the senator.

Father Pfleger is back! Someone get that man a TV show!

Blogging via blackberry is the best thing since sliced bread, Lol.

Seriously. I look at things like this and wonder if people actually believe it. I mean I know when colbert says "secret Muslim," that its an oxymoronic term and its all satire. But people still think this? Bah. Hate.
