Former McCain Campaign Employee, Weekly Standard Nutjob: Obama's Still A Secret Muslim?

These guys don't quit:

Obama has said before that he speaks "barely passable Spanish" and "a smattering of Swahili," as well as some Bahasa from his youth in Indonesia. But Obama has at other times denied speaking a foreign language, saying in July of last year, "I don't speak a foreign language. It's embarrassing!" And even today, Michelle Obama is delivering the commencement address at Washington Math, Science, Technology Public Charter School, where Mark Knoller reports that she implored graduates to learn a language, and that both she and the president "regret they never learned another language."

It seems there is some legitimate confusion on just what languages Obama speaks, and as far as Arabic, the only real hint has came from Nick Kristof, who heard Obama recite the Muslim call to prayer in Arabic and with a "first-rate accent" back in 2007. With even the White House now smearing Obama as a Muslim, one wonders if the president hasn't been concealing some greater fluency with the language of the Koran.

Not only is Kolfarb considered what passes for good journalism at The Weekly Standard, the leading right wing magazine in the country, but he also nabbed a spot as deputy communications director for the McCain 2008 campaign.

The next time I see someone on Peach Pundit claim that the problem was their people aren't extreme or bigoted enough, well...
