And John McCain's father was a Rastafarian . . . .

Sinking to a new low, Libertarian (not!) Republican offers us this: And the evidence comes out: Barack Hussein Obama is indeed a Muslim according to his brother Malik, which bases its claim on this:

Malik, in an interview with the Jerusalem Post, lets it slip, that his brother is indeed a Muslim:

"Barack Obama's half brother Malik said Thursday that if elected his brother will be a good president for the Jewish people, despite his Muslim background. In an interview with Army Radio he expressed a special salutation from the Obamas of Kenya."

Aside from the fact that with the vagaries of translation could make "despite his Muslim background" mean many things, LR drops to the ridiculous in claiming that children automatically inherit their father's religion:

We here at LR blog reported last week on the ongoing controversy of Obama's birth certificate not being released from Hawaii. It has since been released. His given name was indeed Barack Hussein Obama II according to the document. His Father's race was listed as "African," which according to local customs, makes Obama an African following the Father's lineage, as does his religious background according to Muslim law, which flows through the Father's line.

I've got a suggestion: instead of Libertarian Republican, maybe Eric Dondero could change the name of his blog to Wacko Republican and save those of us who think being a Libertarian means something besides slinging mud the embarrassment of the term's association.
