Via the comments, this “Conservapedia” entry on Obama is pretty priceless. The start of the entry:

Barack Hussein Obama, II (allegedly born in Honolulu,[1][2] August 4, 1961)

Yes, to “conservatives,” whether or not he was even born is suspect. But they are just warming up. Under “Obama and Islam,” this:

Obama is likely to be Muslim because:

* Obama’s background and education are Muslim
* Obama’s middle name remains Muslim, meaning “descendant of Muhammad,” which most Christians would not retain[8]
* Obama recently referred to his “Muslim faith”[9]
* Obama uses the Muslim Pakistani pronunciation for “Pakistan” rather than the common American one[10]
* Obama, in his autobiography “Dreams from My Father” (1995), descibes Muslim Malcolm X as his favorite black leader
* Obama’s claims of conversion to Christianity arose after he became politically ambitious, lacking a date of conversion or baptism.[11]

    Conservapedia practically defines "low-hanging fruit". The people who put that thing together make RedStaters look like erudite moderates. When it was first unleashed onto the world, Jon Swift wrote a classic article about it. They’ve changed the article, but kangaroo used to have this priceless bit:

    Kangaroo: "Like all modern animals, modern kangaroos originated in the Middle East and are the descendants of the two founding members of the modern kangaroo baramin that were taken aboard Noah’s Ark prior to the Great Flood."

    Also this:

    Theory of Relativity: "Nothing useful has even been built based on the theory of relativity.…’All things are relative’ became popular as atheists and others used relativity to attack Christian values. There remains enormous political support for the theory of relativity that has nothing to do with physics, and Congress continues to spend billions of dollars unsuccessfully searching for particles predicted by the theory of relativity."

    Edit: and this, from the current version of the same article:

    There is a correlation between enthusiasm for the theory of relativity and political views. For example, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama helped publish an article by liberal law professor Laurence Tribe to apply the relativistic concept of "curvature of space" to promote a broad legal right to abortion.[36]

    Compared to that, Larry Johnson retreads are run of the mill. (For starters, anybody using a GPS unit is using something that depends on general relativity).

    Now let us take the name "Hussein." It is from the Semitic word hasan, meaning "good" or "handsome." Husayn is the diminutive, affectionate form. …There have been lots of Husseins in history, from the grandson of the prophet Mohammed, a hero who touched the historian Gibbon, to King Hussein of Jordan, one of America’s most steadfast allies in the 20th century.

    From the "Talk" section about Obama – I can’t tell if this is snark or for real:

    Look at this photo, is this Barack Obama’s birth certificate? Visitor 23:44, 22 August 2008 (EDT)

    It’s interesting that they finally give the, so-called authentic, birth certificate number in this supposedly unfaked photo. It is 151 1961 – 010641. The reason I bring this up, and I think the REAL reason this was masked, is because numerological analysis shows something very disturbing. If you add up the three sets of digits thus:

    151 + 1961 + 010641 = 12753

    and then add the individual digits of the result thus:

    1 + 2 + 7 + 5 + 3 = 18

    the final result, 18, is the product of three sixes (3 x 6 = 18). Three sixes, or 666, sort of speaks for itself. I just thought this was interesting. –AdmiralNelson 11:22, 23 August 2008 (EDT)

    Obama is not at all likely to be Muslim because:

    * Obama’s background and education are mostly Christian
    * Obama’s middle name is common among both Muslims and Christians in West Asia and East Africa, and means "handsome"
    * Andy Schafly seriously thinks there’s a ‘Muslim Pakistani pronunciation for "Pakistan"’ but that’s got nothing to do with Obama
    * Obama’s claims of conversion to Christianity arose after he became politically ambitious… OK, I’ll let you have that one.

    Good grief. Even if Obama was a Muslim, who cares? There are many progressive minded Muslims out there. Fox News and the wingnuts keep confusing Obama with Rep. Keith Ellison of Minneapolis, who is the Muslim congressmen that swore his oath on the Qu’ran. What seems left out of the news is that Keith is one of the more progressive members of Congress. He has lobbied hard for LGBT rights, including gay marriage, for abortion rights, against FISA and for single payer healthcare. If this is how Muslim American politicians act, the U.S. should elect more of them.

My favorite was the time I was interviewed by a local Spanish-language TV station. They were doing a story on some nonsense, and wanted to talk to "a scientist" for comment. The nonsense was the theory by someone in Japan that if you take drops of water, put them on a cookie sheet, and put the sheet in the freezer, the ice crystals you get will be prettier if you think happy thoughts at them.

    From the WP’s ‘The Trail’. Sorry it’s so long but it was hard to edit:

    CLEARWATER, Fla. — "Okay, so Florida, you know that you’re going to have to hang onto your hats," Sarah Palin told a rally of a few thousand here this morning, "because from now until Election Day it may get kind of rough."

    You betcha. And the person dishing out the roughest stuff at the moment is Sarah Palin.

    "I was reading my copy of the New York Times the other day," she said.

    "Booooo!" replied the crowd.

    "I knew you guys would react that way, okay," she continued. "So I was reading the New York Times and I was really interested to read about Barack’s friends from Chicago."

    It was time to revive the allegation, made over the weekend, that Obama "pals around" with terrorists, in this case Bill Ayers, late of the Weather Underground. Many independent observers say Palin’s allegations are a stretch; Obama served on a Chicago charitable board with Ayers, now an education professor, and has condemned his past activities.

    "Now it turns out, one of his earliest supporters is a man named Bill Ayers," Palin said.

    "Boooo!" said the crowd.

    "And, according to the New York Times, he was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, ‘launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol,’" she continued.

    "Boooo!" the crowd repeated.

    "Kill him!" proposed one man in the audience.

    Palin went on to say that "Obama held one of the first meetings of his political career in Bill Ayers’s living room, and they’ve worked together on various projects in Chicago." Here, Palin began to connect the dots. "These are the same guys who think that patriotism is paying higher taxes — remember that’s what Joe Biden had said. "And" — she paused and sighed — "I am just so fearful that this is not a man who sees America the way you and I see America, as the greatest force for good in the world. I’m afraid this is someone who sees America as ‘imperfect enough’ to work with a former domestic terrorist who had targeted his own country."

    "Boooo!" said the audience.

    In the story, the world is mesmerized by a god from another dimension played by a charismatic black woman who truly does bring universal peace and love to the planet. Her only price: we all must worship her (and provide her with a statistically irrelevant number of humans to eat) and unify around our love for her.

    I don’t think Obama is evil or a villain of any kind. But the lesson is pretty valid. Obama is the high priest of a cult of unity. Unity can be useful, but it is also very, very dangerous. That’s why the founders conceived of a system of divided government, after all.

    Jeremy,

    I visited your little shack. Simply adorable. You could use some antlers, maybe. And more cowbell. Really, your "upgrade" is composed entirely of FAIL. It’s hard to read and a train wreck of bad design.

    Ironically, you misspelled "collegiate."

    That you attract attention to yourself is a testament to your ignorance. You really don’t know how stupid you are, do you? It’s lucky you are so good-looking. That will get you far.

    Good God, you’re a damn moron.

    Read this.

    Impulse voting, which is what many supporters of Sen. Barack Obama are doing, is when one does one of more of the following:

    * Fully supports a candidate early on without a full knowledge of a candidate’s stances

    Maverick!

    * Ignores shortcomings and negative information about a candidate

    Keating! Maverick!

    * Chooses a candidate based on only a one or two pieces of information- his/her skin color, religion, political party,

    Republican! Maverick!

    * Chooses a candidate because they are different from the current president, and that’s all that matters

    Maverick! Maverick! Maverick!

    * You see my pattern?

    All tool clearly.

    (Edit: Not edited because "tool" counts as fortuitous freudian mistype.)

    Jeremy,

    Free keg for every hit you can score? A t-shirt. It’s gotta be for a t-shirt.

    Surely to hell you’re not debasing yourself to linking to your cute little webpage because of some sad little need for attention.

    You’re getting something else out of it besides that, right? You can tell me.

    I believe in God, a strong family, and leading a moral lifestyle. I believe that homosexuality is a sin which will be punished with an eternity in hell, and even besides religion I find homosexuality grossly inappropriate, immoral and disgusting. Homosexuality is not found in religion OR nature, and that should tell you something. All too often do people use homosexuality as a way to escape real life and the accountability of certain things. Just because you were abused as a child, didn’t fit in, or had an extra hard life doesn’t mean you were “born gay”. However, that’s enough of that talk; look for my post on morals in the near future.

    Jeremy, there are so many things wrong with this paragraph that it would take hours to respond. Your vehemence about this (and you dropping it into the middle of a post that is supposed to be about voting patterns for no reason) suggest that this is a little too close to the bone for you.

    I will restrict myself to noting that I’m not trying to escape from anything, I had a happy childhood, lots of friends and my parents were well off.

    It’s just that I like sucking cock.

    Fox News and the wingnuts keep confusing Obama with Rep. Keith Ellison of Minneapolis, who is the Muslim congressmen that swore his oath on the Qu’ran.

    That’s because all those people look alike. A certain subset of the self-styled Masters of the Universe take great pride in being unable to tell one nigra/womin/kweer from any other not-white-male-unperson. Once when a certain Very Important Pointy-Haired Boss threw a public temper tantrum because he "couldn’t remember" which "girl" (the 40ish fat Irish-American woman, the 20-something model-wannabe Italian-American woman, the African-American female high-school intern, or the young WASP *male* temp) he’d given three contradictory sets of instructions about the routing of a certain e-mail, a voice from the gallery whispered, "He’s never tasted coffee that hasn’t been spit in, has he?"

    Let’s see. "Jeremy Buff," is a homophobic conservative college student. He is slightly more articulate than Sarah Palin and has the spelling skills of Dan Quayle.

    I say it’s time to play "Spoof or Gannon?"

    No, but I suspect that Jeremy might need one in order to become aware of the concept.

    Jeremy Buff is a conservative college student who has been making waves through the political blogosphere since his blog first came online in 2008. Since then, thousands of readers have visited his blog and have contributed with their own comments telling me what a dim fuckwit I am.

    Fixed.

    Since 2008? Wow, I am in total awe of the depth and breadth of your political knowledge. Are you out of diapers yet or is mommy still tasked with that foul job? Tip: Wash the Cheetos cheese dust off of your hands before your next Palin fwopp-fest, your mom will appreciate it. Really.

    The ‘making waves’ line is reminiscent of the ratfucking Villarreal Brothers and their online self-lovefest. The only waves that these asshats make are the ones that happen when they hit the toilet.

    I agree with the lack of cowbell Jeremy. More cowbell!

    And learn how to spell you moran.

    One other tip Jeremy, head over to Confluence and look up myiq2xu GoatBoy. You too can be in this picture with him!

    Thank you for posting this. I’m studying for my stats midterm as we speak (I’m taking a break, alright?!), and this bit:

    The odds of Obama being truthful in his claim that he converted to Christianity are less than 100 to 1 against it, as fewer than 1% of Muslims convert to Christianity.[12]

    .. goes off to my professor as an example of a dumbass but common statistical mistake (ah, sampling assumption errors).

    Extra credit, baby!

    Thanks Conservapedia for helping this liberal get his MBA!

    Suerly he’s not going to be scared off by a bunch of limp wristed, child abuse surviving, fag lieberals.

    Hello? Jeremy? Hello?

    Are you going to respond, or are you too busy fwapping away at your terminal?

    Come back and be abused, dammit!

    This is better WingNut bait and far more humane than hunting them from airplanes.

    It’s interesting that they finally give the, so-called authentic, birth certificate number in this supposedly unfaked photo. It is 151 1961 – 010641. The reason I bring this up, and I think the REAL reason this was masked, is because numerological analysis shows something very disturbing. If you add up the three sets of digits thus:

    151 + 1961 + 010641 = 12753

    and then add the individual digits of the result thus:

    1 + 2 + 7 + 5 + 3 = 18

    the final result, 18, is the product of three sixes (3×6 = 18). Three sixes, or 666, sort of speaks for itself. I just thought this was interesting.—AdmiralNelson 11:22, 23 August 2008 (EDT)

    Oooh, so close! You forgot to keep reducing:

    From 18:

    1 + 8 = 9

    9 further reduces to 3 x 3 — that’s the Trinity thrice, three times as nice!

    In other words, Obama is three times as awesome as God, the Holy Spirit and Jeebus himself. He really is the Messiah.

    But you get 3 out of 10 points for demonstrating the basic technique and showing your work.

    I think that as Republicans work on their necessary rebranding over these next few years, they should consider giving up the name "Republican Party" in favor of "Counter-Enlightenment" party. Their remaining base clearly consists of those who simply choose magical thinking over empiricism. Might as well call it what it is.
