What Now?

The scary emails that have been going around for months seem to be continuing. There are folks out there that still feel the need to forward ridiculous emails about Obama: being a Muslim, hiring all manner of unqualified people to staff his White House, taking everyone's money and giving it to people that don't work. When will it end? Will we be subjected to this nonsense forever?

I just don't understand why this continues. What is meant to be accomplished by such antics? Case in point: my best friend forwarded this email that her husband's grandmother had sent. Yes, grandmother. It proceeded to outline (ignorantly and unconvincingly, I might add) how one cannot be both a Muslim and a good American. Pretend for a moment that this is even a valid argument, and consider instead the fact that Obama is not, for the billionth time, a Muslim. Really. How many times does this have to be pronounced?!

Now, back to the email itself. Aren't we as Americans supposed to be equal? Why then, are we so damn afraid of anyone that varies slightly from ourselves? I won't even attach or post this email because of it's extreme ridiculousness and idiocy. I just wish that people would wake up and realize that Barack Obama will be our President come January, and perhaps our energies would be better spent focusing on making our country better and not on denigrating the next leader of the United States.
