Sorry if that offends anyone, but a new poll indicating that almost 1 in 3 Republicans thinks Barack Obama is Muslim indicates that they need to smarten up.
But I think there is a more important question -- what if he were? Would that really matter?
I'm always fascinated when I read or hear about the panic that some Americans felt when John F. Kennedy was running for president. The belief that the Pope was going to run the White House was apparently firmly accepted by many people in the run up to that election.
People had a lot to learn then. It appears some still do now.
