Texans: ignorant, and d*mn proud of it

A poll conducted by the University of Texas showed that Texans favor John McCain to Barack Obama (51% to 40%) which comes as little surprise in the home state of current President George W. Bush…

What DOES seem a bit odd is that the same poll, published in the Houston Chronicle, revealed that around 23 percent of Texans polled believe that Barry Obama is a Muslim.

I think that this serves to illustrate the tremendous gaps in the Texas Public Education System.  We’ve really dropped the ball.

*cough* SATIRE *cough*

*cough* SATIRE *cough*

In sadly-ignored reality, Obama is a humanist/racist/socialist masquerading as a protestant Christian.  Why more Texans don’t know the truth (after numerous months they have had to learn it) is far beyond me.

Oh well… if he wins, we should ALL be made aware of it in short order.  Thank goodness for small favors.

    Well golly gee! You sound a heck of a lot like Texas Fred!


    Yuh reckon’?

    (Umm… not sure who that guy is… I’ll take your word for it.)

    EDIT: I looked him up. (CLICK)

    A black, racist, humanist? Sweet! I guess after 43 white, christian, racist presidents, it’s time for Change! Limbaugh and Dobson certainly won’t allow this! Stop that black racist!


    Exactly. Abe Lincoln just KNEW that “emancipation thingie” would come back to haunt him.

    Typical Republican, that one…

    PS: It could be worse… what if he really WAS Muslim??

    Oh my gosh, the satire here! But is Senator Obama pointing at Alec Guinness in your other posting?


    Don’t see why he would be. Britain (and a good chunk of Western Europe) is already bowing… probably in the rough direction of Mecca.

    Indeed. Rowan Atkinson, the Archbishop of Canterbury, has said that England (or Europe, I can’recall the quote exactly) needs to resign itself to some allotment of rule to Shari’a. That’s insane, of course, since the Big-Eyebrows Archbishop doesn’t see that Iran et. al are totalitarian regimes, or at least seriously on their way there. Jimmy Carter, too, does great damage as he travels the world implying that these regimes are nontotalitarian, and that we should lighten up.

    Sorry– I got the Archbishop’s name wrong. It’s Rowan Williams actually– Rowan Atkinson is the Britsh comedian. mea culpa. Nothing to do but come clean about it. Apologies to all readers.


    I can see the Mr. Bean sketch in my mind… and it is a beautiful thing.

    I’m in Texas and I have run across so many people who say “I’m voting the Bible” because we will “be undone by a Muslim.” It’s so sad and ignorant…I just shake my head…There is no use in arguing with them.


    A lot of them are the same ones who swear off of evolution because they didn’t come from monkeys.

    (Note: If you don’t see the irony there, you’re part of the problem.)

    On a related note:

    Q: What’s the biggest difference between Jimmy Carter and Mr. Bean?

    A: Once in a while, it’s a good idea to take Mr. Bean seriously.

    Don’t be too quick to lash out…I do see the irony and believe me, I am not part of the problem. I am open minded enough to realize that everyone has their theories. I also believe in questioning what I hear…and unfortunately some of the people who live here, like everywhere else, don’t question anything…they believe whatever they hear.


    I’m not really lashing… the joke of the thing is that NOBODY thinks we “came from monkeys.” Yet, that’s gripe #1 I always hear from folks who choose to gripe. Feel free to poke around here to read some of the other stuff I’ve written on the subject.

    Sadly, I don’t think the whole “believe something without thinking about it” is solely endemic to our great state… we’re just a little more unabashed about… well, EVERYTHING, including our half-baked opinions.

    Very good point…it is everywhere–not just Texas. Unfortunately for us, many Texans do not choose to discriminate when it comes to their opinions on just about everything. I love this state…I was born/raised here, but I find that I often wonder what it is like other places. I am sure that every state has its hangups…we hear about many of them…I will be happy when our family is able to venture out and see what else is out there. Hopefully we will not be too disappointed.
