  1. I don’t even even know what’s the scariest part of alternative number 2: that people think being a ‘half-breed’ is an unsult or that they think being a muslim is.

  2. In the comments to this thread you will find weapons-grade punnage inspired by the sign.

    example comments 26, 33, and a poem by Cuttlefish on 34.

    While not clever enough to write good puns myself, I can appreciate the work of others.

  3. Not only will he be the first black president, he’ll be the first cloth president too. Those puns are great but like any good pun they make me giggle and hurt my soul just a little.

  4. Goodness.  You can’t begin to imagine how it disappoints me when I see ignorance of that magnitude.  I so wish I could vote in November.  But British expats, alas, are not included.

  5. I am not sure if this is from a flea market or some Christian Nut that is too ignorant to 1) learn what Islam is all about and 2) uneducated enough not be able to spell Muslim.

    I was speaking with my brothers Girlfriend (soon to be ex for separate reason). She said she was going to vote for McCain because Obama does not believe in god!  When questioned further, she still believes he practices Islam and spit forth some crap from the bible about no other god than him or whatever. I informed her that he was in fact a Christian and told her about his father (whom was/is a Muslim).

    Did it help? Probably not. But I was astounded that this far along in the process and there are still MANY of these people out there that have/will not study up on the candidates! That is why I believe all this bullshit they put out works. Most americans are too lazy to fact check, they take things at face value.

    GO OBAMA GO!!

    Kit, what do you bet that there are still Americans who believe that Saddam Hussein had WMD’s?  Confirmation bias is alive and well.

    Next time you should also point out that Islam has the same God as Christianity and Judaism. In fact Islam considers Christians and Jews as basically on the right path, but like children who haven’t been educated completely. Read up on the history and you’ll see this is true.

  8. No, no, no, Les. that quote from the Bable,

    some crap from the bible about no other god than him or whatever

    , referred to Jesus, or Jehovah, or El, or Elohim, or Allah, or I Am, or the Holy Ghost, or the Trinity, or . . . where was I?  tongue wink snake

  9. If he is half “Muslin”, what is the other half….?

    Corduroy? Velveteen? Flannel? Worsted Wool?

  10. The first thought that came to mind as an answer was “Why black velvet, of course!” and then I wasn’t sure if that was appropriate or not so I decided not to say it.

  11. Just want to point out that that pic is photo-shopped.  Look at the last letter carefully and you can see the white-out box.  It actually says “muslim”, but with the last leg of the m erased.

    Even without that, it’s retarded though.  Still, gotta be fair: it’s a fake wink

    I did some checking because political fakes piss me off. 

    I think that is a .jpg compression artifact, and not retouching.  If you look at how the artist makes his ‘M’s it is with splayed-out sides in two strokes.  The ‘N’ has a straight left side with one stroke.  The ‘M’s descend only halfway to the baseline, where the ‘N’ descends all the way to the baseline.  Also, the angle between the putative right-hand diagonal to the uncharacteristic vertical side would be much narrower than the left side, so the retouching would have required a mask – not the rectangular block visible in this version.

    I found a version without the captions, which is to say an earlier version, and the compression noise around the upper-right side of the ‘N shows none of the block that is visible in the version at the top of this post. It shows slight discoloration but no discreet pasting boundary.

    So it probably isn’t fake.

    Yes, good job you never put that on the thread.  I’ll help out by not putting it in a quote box.

    Actually, I did… something along the lines of “and what does it matter if he is a Muslim? They worship the exact same god. exact same!”

    She would not have much of it coming back with the good ‘ol “it does not matter because they do not accept Jesus Christ as their savior”

    At that time I was out of beer, but my bro had the bottle of rum out so I more or less gave up on trying to talk any sense to her and proceeded with my original objective!

    A Man after my heart.

  16. I still don’t get it.  The article said Rice was going to vote for someone else, because Hillary didn’t get the nomination. Is there likely to be a ballot option that says “Who ever has a vagina”. If you are a Hillary supporter, what in the name of Dawkins do you think is represented by Palin?  What possible convergence between the two is there.  I can understand when ?Swordsbane said I won’t vote for the least worst, just to keep McCain out- I can admire a man who doesn’t want to vote negatively (At the next election I may vote to spoil my paper, and write the reason on, as spoiled papers are shown to candidates agents to confirm spoiled, not just badly filled in).

    But throwing a hissy fit and voting for the opposition. Grow up.

  17. Why don’t we have REAL men to choose from, like that wuss, Harry Truman, and that he-man, Tom Dewey?  tongue wink LOL
