2008 Hey, Kentucky! Despite What You Mighta Heard on the FOX Teevee, Obama’s Not a Muslim!

Yay: To Barack Obama for at least TRYING to reach out to Kentucky voters (expected to vote overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton).
Boo: For doing so with such ham-fisted religious pandering (OOH, lookie! A BIG, ILLUMINATED CROSS to prove to the rural hicks that he’s NOT A MUSLIM!)
I’ve come around on Obama (though, yeah, I’m still pissed about the way Hillary was treated)… but fer fuck’s sake, if you want to get rural voters in your camp, you’ve gotta stop treating them like gullible yokels.
