Apollo 4 on column of fire

"The first Muslim president"

Frank Gaffney now is spouting something in the Washington Times about Obama being the "first Muslim president" in the way that Bill Clinton was the "first Black president". In fact I saw this first in John Feehery’s blog at The Hill.

My comment on that blog posting: I told Feehery that the meaning of "first Black president" is widely misunderstood – it meant that Bill Clinton was harassed like a Black man. Thus, by calling Barack Obama the "first Muslim president", Feehery was soiling his own cage.

(Which is normal, of course; these people aren’t toilet-ready. Though Mancow’s act of public service does seem to have affected Armstrong Williams positively.)
