Many People are Morons

Harris Interactive, a market research firm, released the results of an online poll they conducted, which suggest that huge numbers of Americans are stupid, insane, or both when it comes to their views of President Obama. The poll involved 2,320 adults responding to true or false questions. Among many other disturbing facts, 14% of respondents said they believed Obama could be the Antichrist. For those who don't know, the Antichrist is the fictional nemesis of biblical hero Jesus Christ. When Jesus accidentally fell into the core of an early particle collider in "Bible Stories" #258, his personality was split into two physical beings: one good and the other evil. Or something like that. Anyway, a lot of people believe Obama is that guy. When broken into partisan results, it seems 24% of all Republican respondents hold this view, while only 6% of Democrats are that batshit crazy. But taken as a whole, the numbers in this poll are depressing. 32% think Obama is a Muslim. 23% think Obama is a racist. And 20% say Obama is "doing many of the things Hitler did." That last one is actually true. Hitler's days were mostly spent yakking with aides and signing documents. Also, basketball. More horrible details here.
