Is he or isn't he? - Numerous polls conducted across America in the past 2 days have thrown up all sorts of figures.
Leading the pack is the "Birther" issue where right-wing crackpots who believe babies are found under cabbage bushes or delivered by the stork insist that the "Kenyan-born" Obama's birth announcement was 'deliberately planted' in Honolulu newspapers, by socialists and commies, 'way back in 1961' in a calculated effort to pave the way for his eventual Presidency.
Not since the heralding of the "Messiah" by trumpeting Arch-angels has such a prophesy come true!
Now it appears 3 out of 5 Americans don't believe Obama is American. A similar number also believe that they have been kidnapped and impregnated by aliens.
As to the Muslim/Christian issue - "9 out of 7 or five-thirds" [yep - that's American math] believe that Obama is Muslim "Ah believe on account of his Daddy bein a Muzlim".
When shown a picture of the Prez together with snapshots of other celebrities and asked to identify him as either black or white, this same number of Americans said they believed he was a white man dipped in chawklit sawse and the love child of Harry Belafonte and Ethel Roosevelt.
