Obama's Latest Plot: Giving Manhattan Back to the Native Americans (Not!)

The right-wing myth machine never ceases to amaze. Not content to claim that President Obama is (1) foreign born (Keyna!), (2) a secret Muslim (of course), (3) an anti-American socialist (naturally!) and so on, now the Wingnuts claim that he's planning to give Manhattan back to the Indians. 

Obama would do that, wouldn't he? Sure, it makes perfect sense for this America-hating, Christian-hating foreigner.

It's baloney, as always, but the right-wingers keep beating this horse, hoping against hope that one of these myths will lead to the Real Truth about the Great Satan, er, President Obama.

We've said it before, but it's worth repeating: Political arguments should be based on facts and evidence, not rumor and speculation. The right's continuing failure to make its case based on some semblance of reality undermines its claims to be taken seriously. (Glenn Beck, anyone? Sean Hannity? Rush?)

Read the full-bore nuttiness here.

How about this for the next one: Obama is really an extraterrestrial alien. Many of his fellow aliens are masquerading as liberals in this country (though it would be better cover to pretend to be redstaters.)

There's still at least a sucker born every minute. And if this one doesn't stick, try another. Let's make our country as big a laughing stock as possible.
