Texans Are As Dumb As I Always Suspected - 25% Believe Obama Is A Muslim!

Well it's official! A fact I long suspected about us Texans...we are dumb as a post sometimes. Now we have proof. A recent poll by the University of Texas says that about 1/4 that's a quarter of all Texans believe Barack Obama is a Muslim. Molly Ivins is laughing from her grave!


When asked to identify Obama’s religion, 45 percent of respondents accurately identified him as Protestant, however 23 percent erroneously identified him as Muslim.

Another 28 percent of Texans did not know Obama’s religion, while 0.2 percent of Texans believe that Obama is a Hindu. The poll’s sponsors did not speculate as to why so many Texans are mistaken about Obama’s faith.

Lordy, I guess some folks just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get their news from the back of a cereal box. It's a wonder Texas has newspapers and television, heck apparently a quarter of the people here only use the paper to line birdcages and the TV, well if it's not football or NASCAR, why watch?

And before you go flaming me for this rant, I am born and raised in Texas. I drink iced tea and Dr, Pepper like the rest of us Texans so get over it! Now, if you aren't curious enough to find out anything about the candidates and their positions, much less their religion, please DON'T VOTE. Otherwise, you'll saddle the rest of us with another idiot like you did in the last general election.

For the record, Obama is a Protestant, always was, too.
