Another Reason to Vote for Barack Obama: He's Arab-American!

At least now we know that Edward Said is still right; the hatred of Arabs and Muslims is the last acceptable hatred in the United States. It's not that Obama is African-American, but that he is Arab-American (which is code for Muslim, which is code for terrorist). Did you know that the number one Google search these days is: "Barack Obama" and "Muslim"?
“She keeps John on his toes,” said Wayne Jackson, a Vietnam veteran in a wheelchair, who was wearing a Navy baseball cap with a John McCain button pinned to the front. “When she was over with Mother Teresa, she brought a baby home from India!” Jackson had heard McCain speak six or seven times and said that he feared Barack Obama. “He’s not African-American—-he’s Arab-American.”

So vote for Obama, not only because he's a good choice, but because he's Arab-American!
Yours in Arab-American, Philip Metres
