Idiot of the Week candidate
You'll have to listen to story on the National Public Radio page to hear what I'm talking about, but one of their reporters in New Hampshire found a real, live person willing to admit his bigoted opinion of Senator Obama. He would never vote for "Barack Osama -- there's only one letter difference" because, in his view, it just isn't right for someone with Muslim ancestry, with the middle name Hussein, who allegedly does not place his hand on his heart during the Pledge of Allegiance, to become President of the United States. I haven't found a transcript of the Morning Edition segment yet, but the man's name sounded like Charles Fasano or Fassano. With any luck we'll get the name straight soon, because this guy shouldn't go unrecognized for his shameless idiocy.
