As the propagating misinformation machine, FOX NEWS continues to further the agenda of the neo-cons, the Democratic Party might have to lighten up. As the race for the presidency gruels on for the Dems between Obama and Clinton, Republican candidate John McCain is good for taking shots at the frontrunner Obama and the underdog Clinton for their embroiled feud that no one really cares to watch anymore. Clinton wants to debate Obama as Obama's sights are more proactive in that he wants to debate McCain in October.
Wouldn't it be funny and parodical if Senator Obama poked fun at FOX NEWS for their greasy efforts of trying to equate his middle and last name with fundamentalist Muslims? For all those viewing this blog from outside the States, this did happen earlier this year. It became the archetype for all the current questions regarding his patriotism and religious beliefs. Obama could have a little fun and throw an apostrophe between the first two letters of his surname to obscure the difference between him and McCain.
What I have vowed to do as a result of overkill is to distance myself from delving into coverage of the primaries and caucuses simply because at this point it's like watching a baseball game go into the fifth extra inning. I just want it to end already. But Americans love their excess, and this is yet another ongoing story that can be milked for all the news coverage a camera crew and a satellite feed can bring to the homes of those who have to be told what to believe and feel for.

But did you hear the one about religious fear-mongers saying Satan will come to the earth in the form of a seemingly peaceful Muslim man? Nothing like the scent of foulness to prompt preachers to reach on unusual name grabs.

I wouldn't be surprised if Jerry Falwell was involved with that religious dogma fearmongering you're talking about, sankofa. It's a crying shame that fear has been utilized to control the general public for the last 7 years. President Obama's gonna put a stop to that.
