Huge Fuss Over Obama's 'Ordinary' Public School

More on the Fox-fed hatchet job/smear.  Sadly, this is probably true:

"Frankly, some of this will stick because no matter how thoroughly you debunk a story, the allegation is out there," Ornstein said.

Mark Twain once said that a lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes. With the presidential campaign season heating up so soon, those lies have already begun their travels.


Huge Fuss Over Obama's 'Ordinary' Public School

How the Story of a Supposed Madrassa Spread


WASHINGTON, Jan. 25, 2007— - Earlier today, I asked Senator Barack Obama if as a child he attended a Madrassa -- an Islamic school. He said no.

Madrassas are conservative Islamic schools, many of which teach a virulent hatred of America.

"It wasn't an extremist school at all?" I asked.

"It was an ordinary public school," he replied. "The kids ran around in short pants and learned math and science and participated in the boy's scouts. It was comparable to any school here in the United States," he explained.

How on earth did we get to this point? Where a United States Senator is explaining that he went to a normal elementary school and not a terrorist recruiting center?
