Wait...this is a real thing that happens?

From Lutheranchik:

Overheard conversation here in Outer Podunk:

"I ain't votin' fer no one named Obama, 'cause that sounds too much like Osama."

Welcome to my world.

Are you kidding me?

Someone told me that people might dismiss Obama for this reason, and I said, "There's no way that'll work. People aren't that irrational."

Okay, then. Apparently I'm wrong.

I think we'll actually see organized opposition to him based on this ignorance.

or at least seen the Daily Show's take on it.

Mrs. Jeff mentioned that story this morning, but I didn't know what she was talking about. Now I do.

(I sent you a fax a week or so ago. It might've been tossed. I'll try again tomorrow morning.)
