Reprinted from The Satirical Political Report

On the heels of its false accusation that Barack Obama attended an Islamist madrassa school as a youth, FOX News today asserted that Senator Obama is unfit to be President based on his radical education at ... Harvard Law School.

As Sean Hannity stated, "it’s bad enough this guy took courses in constitutional law and ethics, but to do it in the hotbed of radicalism known as Cambridge, that just goes a little too far."

When informed that such "conservative" Supreme Court Justices as Scalia and Roberts also attended Harvard Law, Hannity dismissed the comparison out-of-hand: "Those guys obviously didn’t go to class; instead, they listened to books-on-tape from The Federalist Society."

Bill O’Reilly also jumped into the act, asserting in his No-Spin Zone that "terrorists are just licking their chops in anticipation of a President who understands the meaning of due process and habeas corpus."

"And the worst thing is," O’Reilly added, "Obama apparently also took a course from some Native American professor at Harvard named Laurence Tribe — would you be surprised if Obama now gives the whole country back to the Indians?"

O’Reilly concluded that "Obama would’ve been better off being educated in a madrassa; at least there they believe in God."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
