Jesus, Man, Buy the DVD and Get Over It

Arlington mayor fires at Obama online:
In the opinion of Arlington Mayor Russell Wiseman, President Barack Obama's speech on Tuesday night on the war in Afghanistan was deliberately timed to block the Christian message of the "Peanuts" television Christmas special.

Wiseman made the statements on his Facebook page, where he declared Obama to be a Muslim. Only people on Wiseman's "friend's list" had access to the post. He has more than 1,600 friends on Facebook.

"Ok, so, this is total crap, we sit the kids down to watch 'The Charlie Brown Christmas Special' and our muslim president is there, what a load.....try to convince me that wasn't done on purpose. Ask the man if he believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and he will give you a 10 minute disertation (sic) about it....w...hen the answer should simply be 'yes'...."

As you know, SWORS (Spasmodic Wingnut Outrage Syndrome) is a disorder of the central nervous system that causes impairment of higher brain function in some American conservatives. Sufferers from SWORS experience a near-total loss of any sense of proportion and become prone to manic outbursts of indignation over trivial events.

I think going ballistic and accusing the President of deliberately scheduling what was arguably the major policy address of this year just to pre-empt Charlie Brown is a sign that SWORS has permanently damaged this guy's brain.

As my friend BCB puts it: Good grief!

Oh my, if Obama really is anti-Charlie Brown, I may have to rethink my support of him. Save Peanuts may be the new rallying cry (but of course we'll have to put the little copyright symbol to avoid confusion and possible alienation of those with peanut allergies).
It would all be funnier if it weren't so scary . . .

You missed the even better bit further down in the article:

At another point he said, "you know, our forefathers had it written in the original Constitution that ONLY property owners could vote, if that has stayed in there, things would be different........"

How did this creep ever get elected dogcatcher, much less mayor of anything?

So Jesus wouldn't be allowed to vote.

I nominate Mayor Wiseman for this year's Most Oxymoronic Name Award.

The original Constitution in this guy's head may say that, but the one at the National Archives (transcribed on their website at: http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/constitution_transcript.html ), doesn't..

his comment about longing for a world where only property owners could vote damns the notion with faint praise- of course the laws he remembers so fondly actually said that only white, male, property owners could vote...

Wow, that is some serious Reality Distortion Field that Mr Wisemas is living inside! :P
