New Presidential Hopeful Appears On Ballot

10/11/2008 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Barack ObamaAbsentee voters in upstate New York looking for a president that will bring real change just got their wish.

Over 300 ballots recently received by mail in Rensselaer County listed the choices for president as John McCain and a new hopeful -- Barack "Osama." Is the GOP in the printing business now?

Voting commissioner Edward McDonough apologized calling it "human error" and "an embarrassment to our office." After the Sarah Palin VP announcement, nothing really comes as a shock anymore.

Easy to confuse. And, remember, Nostradamus predicted that soon, a Muslim man in his 40's would quickly rise to power with false promises which would be the beginning of the end. Isn't that guy Obama?

Keep trying to smear Obama, it is only making him stronger. It also makes your candidate and your supporters look like idiots:

At a town-hall event Friday in Minnesota, McCain took the microphone from a woman who had called Obama an Arab. McCain said, "No, ma'am," and he called Obama "a decent, family man."

McCain drew boos at the same event when he told a supporter who expressed fear at the prospect of Obama's election that the Democrat is a "person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States."

Obama Hussein Barak is the Anti-Christ    

A lot of Americans have become so insulated from reality that they imagine that America can suffer defeat without any inconvenience to themselves.

Pause a moment, reflect back.

These events are actual events from history..

They really happened!!!

Do you remember?

1. 1968 Bobby Kennedy was shot and killed by a Muslim male extremist.

2. In 1972 at the Munich Olympics, athletes were kidnaped and massacred by Muslim male extremists.

3. In 1979, the US embassy in Iran was taken over by Muslim male extremists.

4. During the 1980's a number of Americans were kidnaped in Lebanon by Muslim male extremists.

5. In 1983, the US Marine barracks in Beirut was blown up by Muslim male extremists.

6. In 1985 the cruise ship Achille Lauro was hijacked and a 70 year old American passenger was murdered and thrown overboard in his wheelchair by Muslim male extremists.

7. In 1985 TWA flight 847 was hijacked at Athens , and a US Navy diver was murdered by Muslim male extremists. ( remember the pilot of this flight was from Richmond, MO)

8. In 1988 , Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by Muslim male extremists.

9. In 1993 the World Trade Center was bombed the first time by Muslim male extremists.

10. In 1998, the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed by Muslim male extremists.

11. On 9 /11/01, four airliners were hijacked; two were used as missiles to take down the W orld Trade Centers and of the remaining two, one crashed into the US Pentagon and the other was diverted and crashed by the passengers. Thousands of people were killed by Muslim male extremists.

12. In 2002 the United States fought a war in Afghanistan against Muslim male extremists.

13. In 2002 reporter Daniel Pearl was kidnaped and murdered by-- you guessed it-- Muslim male extremists.

No, I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do you?
So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no longer be allowed to profile certain people... Absolutely No Profiling!

They must conduct random searches of 80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper identification, secret agents who are members of the President's security detail, 85-year old Congressmen with metal hips, and Medal of Honor winner and former Governor Joe Foss, but leave Muslim Males alone lest they be guilty of profiling.

According to The Book of Revelations:

The Anti-Christ will be a man, in his 40's, of MUSLIM descent, who will deceive the nations with persuasive language, and have a MASSIVE Christ-like appeal....the prophecy says that people will flock to him and he will promise false hope and world peace, and when he is in power, he will destroy everything.

And Now:
For the award winning Act of Stupidity Of all times the People of America want to elect, to the most Powerful position on the face of the Planet -- The Presidency of the United states of America .. A Male of Muslim descent who is the most extremely liberal Senator in Congress (in other words an extremist) and in his 40's.

Have the American People completely lost their Minds, or just their Power of Reason ???

I'm sorry but I refuse to take a chance on the 'unknown' candidate Obama...

Let's send this to as many people as we can so that the Gloria Aldreds and other stupid attorneys along with Federal Justices that want to thwart common sense, feel ashamed of themselves -- if they have any such sense.

As the writer of the award winning story 'Forest Gump' so aptly put it,
'Stupid Is As Stupid Does'

LOL.. wow funny how a story about a misprint turns into a forum for militant republicans. Hey if you want news go check out some of the actual 'news' sites about how Palin was found to have 'abused' her power as governor. Oh of course she denies it, hell she didn't even want to participate in the state investigation... she's a Maverick, she doesn't have to participate in any stinkin' state investigation. I guess all that winking and 'by golly' BS only goes so far. McCain and Palin are history.

Throughout my life I have barely believed in God, but I did spend 13 years in a Christian School. Fact is 5 is right. If Barack wins I'll be going back to church and getting ready for the end of times. I'd never vote for a democrat regardless as I'm one of the people they love taxing. Hey pinheads, did anyone ever explain economics 101 to any of you. Business owners never actually pay taxes... they either pass them on, leave, or go belly up. So all you sheep that think taxing the rich is awesome don't get that we're the second highest taxed nation on earth and 1/3 of the price of everything you buy from cars to baby clothes are embedded taxes. So go ahead and keep thinking taxing others doesn't affect you...meanwhile our tax system will destroy this country.

#5, you are one mis-informed person. Barack Obama is not of Muslim descent and even if he was, what right do you have to call ALL MUSLIMS terrorists? There are so many Muslims in this world who have done good things. Let's not forget that terrorists come from all nations including the USA. People like you make our country look bad, by saying incoherent nonsense. I'm glad that you would rather support McCain/Palin, a pair that will bring further destruction to our country. #10, your nonsense makes me sick as well! I guess you did not know that most people with college degrees vote as Democrats. The number of doctors and lawyers who will vote Democratic come November has increased immensely. Most Republicans are uneducated people who don't even know the definition of politics! The Republican Party has definitely done one thing these past 8 years-they have separted our country and focused on only the Bible Belt of America. It is time to bring a President who will unite us and our country. If you are stupid enough to think that Obama is Muslim, then you are stupid enough to think McCain/Palin should win this election.

Barack Obama is simply the most unqualified, egotistical, liberal man ever to be this close to the office of the presidency. And you have the gall to make fun of Sarah Palin? Hold on to your purses everyone, Barack may be at the top. I wake up in the middle of the night in fear of an Obama presidency. What on earth are all of you O supporters thinking? Look into the financial mess........all caused by Democrats FORCING lenders to let unqualified people - most of them illegal aliens and minorities - buy houses they couldn't afford. It is a horrible mess. When you don't et capitalism and the markets take care of messes, they become worse. Fewer and fewer people will be supporting more and more people. Think about it everyone, think about it.
