Barack Obama’s stint with Islam during his childhood has apparently become a major political issue in the US. Allegations(video) and refutations(video) are floating around in the media. I can almost picture Obama yelling out ‘Hey! I’m Obama not Osama!’

US is a melting pot; it’s the least xenophobic of all nations, no doubt about that. But all this is limited only to the apolitical landscape. As far as politics goes, it’s a different story altogether. Why is there such a disconnect?

Also, check out Jon Stewart’s take(video) on the issue, hilarious! (and that’s where the title of the post has been taken from)
