Crazy conservatives believe that Obama is a Muslim. Except for me, of course, because I’m totally sane and I think he’s an atheist.
Enter Obama supporter Madonna who, to the cheers of the audience declared POTUS a “black Muslim” in what LA Times declared “bizarre endorsement”:
“Y’all better vote for … Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right?” she implored concertgoers, who cheered loudly in reaction to her sentiment. And then she said this:
“We have a black Muslim in the White House.”
But we don’t. Obama isn’t Muslim, despite an oft-referenced poll that 17% of Americans believe he is. The blogosphere is divided with theories that she’s either being sarcastic or, quelle horreur, misinformed.
The singer is probably senile by now, but it’s not just her. The audience was quite approving. Stanford Prison Experiment notwithstanding, a number of his supporters believe that Obama is a Muslim.
UPDATE: The hamster-cheeked singer is now saying that her statement was ironic. She needs to look up “irony” in the dictionary.
