BY FAR the dumbest thing I ever read.

Read this blog entry on Obama's mom. Go ahead. I'll wait. It's quick.

I can't grab a snippet of it because the whole thing is just so ridiculous and badly written. Basically, the guy is pointing to all the things in Obama's mama's life that make her a radical leftist Marxist wacko.

Now, more than likely, a goodly portion of it isn't true. If any of it is true, it's probably inflated and conflated and frankly, very few, especially the guy who posted the diadribble, really understands what Marxism and Communism is anyway. According to the entry, she's a Marxist because she went to a high school that had a few Marxist teachers. Yeah, right. She studied critical theory OH MY. That just means she just critiqued society (google Horkeimer and the Franklin School) in an effort to change society. They say she was a communist, but really, communism is just capitalism with the owners of production being the state and not a corporation. Marxist? Marx wasn't anti-capitalist. Marx wasn't into totalitarianism. Marx was more about having the means of production more firmly in the hands of those who produced.

The worst thing in that post is, if the statements that Obama made distancing himself from his mother's political ideas are accurate, it only shows that Obama is more of a politician than his supporters are probably willing to admit.

Wow, whoever wrote that anti-Obama screed has serious issues - and I don't mean the political kind. Just the ridiculous repetition of words like "leftist" and "Marxist" and "Communist" suggests the guy has a few screws loose. Never mind the piece's almost hysterical tone.
The author needs the help of a good psychiatrist.
