Disinformation & Obama

Last week, I called attention to the fact that there is no “confusion” about whether or not Obama is a Muslim, because confusion comes from an inability to process information. The misinformation at the root of the “Obama is a Muslim” story produces not confusion but manipulation.

Today, at Politico.com, Neal Gabler examines the bizarre phenomenon afflicting large portions of the country. Where are the Republican leaders who will stand up to this nonsense instead of conniving at it? Shame on them. Shame, shame, shame.
