How long before someone from Fox News notices where Gustav originated: off the coast of Africa!?  Certainly this is no coincidence. Consider the following:

  1. Africa is where Obama's father was born.
  1. Obama's father was born Muslim.
  1. There are, in fact, many Muslims in Africa.
  1. Obama has visited Africa (more than once!).
  1. The Swedish involvement in African slave trade was greatly expanded under King Gustav III. Obama has opposed the African slave trade.

More and poll after the jump

  1. German explorer Gustav Nachtigal was one of the few European explorers of his era who "did not believe in the alleged inferiority of Africans." Surely Obama would approve!
  1. Six years ago, it was reported that the African nation of Burundi is host to a 6-meter long, man-eating fresh water crocodile -- possibly the world's biggest. It's name: Gustave.
  1. To my knowledge, Obama has never condemned this threat to humankind.

Wake up people!  We've invaded entire countries on less compelling evidence.

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.
