Is Obama America's First Muslim President? I Wish!

Yes, I mean it -- I really do wish President Obama was America's first Muslim president! (For reasons I'll explain below.)

However, I don't think that was the response that uber conservative commentator Frank Gaffney was hoping for when I read his op-ed in The Washington Times on June 9, 2009 posing the question: "Is Obama America's first Muslim President?" (By the way, Gaffney not only thinks Obama is a Muslim, but he contends that Obama is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.)


So why do I truly wish that President Obama was really a Muslim? Because he is cool. In fact, he may be the coolest guy out there right now. Hence Muslim would equal cool. What Muslim wouldn't want that?!

Plus Obama would be showing all Americans that being Muslim means being smart and articulate, that being Muslim means caring about other people -- about wanting to provide health insurance to Americans not fortunate enough to have coverage, it means trying to save hundreds of thousands of American jobs with his stimulus plan, it means working to bring peace and security to both Palestinians and Israelis, it means a person who loves America so much that he wants to return our country to it's rightful place as a beacon of justice, equality and fairness.
