Texas Tea Party Leader Gets on the 'Obama is Muslim' Train to Crazytown

The Zanies are out there—and some of them live in (wait for it…) Texas. Yee-ha!

We're talking about the paranoid fantasies of the Wingnut crowd—Texas Tea Party folks who make up their own facts (read: lies) about President Obama.

It's one thing to disagree with the president, any president. That's part of politics.

But the persistent and fantastic attempts to make Obama into a foreign-born Muslim and a Communist are pernicious and dishonest. These are Big Lies designed to undermine the president not by what he says or does, but by painting him as a Scary Foreigner Who Will Destroy America.

Now the Texas Tea Party leader (read all about it here) is promoting this nonsense, a line of reasoning so specious as to undermine his agenda and put him squarely in the middle of, yes, Crazytown.
