Dumb Americans, part 5

When I read CRAP like this, it just makes my blood boil. These are actual quotes given to the Associated Press by voters in Pennsylvania:

"I don't think we're ready for either (a black or woman president) yet," said Doug Richardson, 62, a contractor from Latrobe. Obama "just hasn't impressed me," he said over midmorning coffee with a friend at Denny's. "His middle name bothers me a lot." That name is Hussein.

Robert Miller, 72, who lives in a government subsidized room in Bedford, said the Constitution should be amended so it will "not let any colored people run for the White House." He seemed unsure about his voting record in recent elections, but vividly recalled voting for Dwight Eisenhower in 1956.

Dixie Pebley of Johnstown, 71, explained her distaste for Obama, saying, "black doesn't bother me, but Muslim does." When reminded that Obama is a Christian, she conceded the point, but added: "He was born Muslim and raised Muslim, that's enough for me. He just scares me to death."

On behalf of America, I apologize. I certainly hope these idiots do not represent the average Pennsylvania voter.  But analysts are already describing Pennsylvania as "Philadelphia in the east, Pittsburgh in the west and Alabama in between."  Scary.

Somebody remind me: is this 2008 or 1958?
