Right Wing Gaffe on Obama's "Islamic Ring"

Looks like WND and ilk have gone off the deep end with the Obama has an Islamic Ring story, even though it has been thoroughly debunked as the wishful interpretation of a completely benign decorative pattern of straight and wavy lines. I strongly doubt they will retract this claim now, given how close it is to the election.

Ironically, the folks normally doing the job of seeing Islamic writings in any old pattern of a squiggly/stripey nature have been Muslims. And when these Muslims see Allah and Muhammad written in a sliced tomato and on a fish skin, the Christian right is more than happy to join in what is a completely justified mockery of a more-severe-than-usual case of religiously-driven delusion. But said Christian rightists have now revealed their hypocrisy, gleefully using the same ridiculous tactics when it comes to attempting demolition of a presidential candidate. They have shown themselves to be more desperate than even I could have imagined.
