Limbaugh Repeats Baseless Smear On Obama's Ethnicity

Unbeknownst to Barack Obama and his entire family I'm sure, is that he's not actually black or African-American -- he's Arab. At least that's the claim of right-wing troglodyte Rush Limbaugh who said on his radio show yesterday that the Democratic Presidential nominee doesn't have "… one shred of African-American blood" and is really of Arab descent.

It's so great that we have Media Matters to ride herd on the Sean Hannitys and Rush Limbaughs of the world and they picked up this snippet from Limbaugh:
"These polls on how one-third of blue-collar white Democrats won't vote for Obama because he's black, and -- but he's not black. Do you know he has not one shred of African-American blood? He doesn't have any African -- that's why when they asked whether he was authentic, whether he's down for the struggle. He's Arab. You know, he's from Africa. He's from Arab parts of Africa. He's not -- his father was -- he's not African-American. The last thing that he is is African-American."
Do you suppose Rush is back on another Oxycontin bender?
