The viral email campaign to smear Barack Obama as some kind of Manchurian candidate has shifted to new terrain. The prior wave of lies and innuendo about the Illinois senator and presidential candidate claimed that he is covertly anti-Israel and antisemitic. According to the newest contribution to this genre, he is anti-American as well:

Subject: Fw: THIS PICTURE IS WORTH MORE THAN A THOUSAND WORDS!

I had heard about this but a picture is definitely worth 1000 words! God save us!!!

Senator Barack Obama, Governor Bill Richardson, Senator Hillary Clinton and Ruth Harkin stand during the national anthem.

Barack Hussein Obama's photo (that's his real name)……the article said he REFUSED TO NOT ONLY PUT HIS HAND ON HIS HEART DURING THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE, BUT REFUSED TO SAY THE PLEDGE…..how in the hell can a man like this expect to be our next Commander-in-Chief??

The critical reading skills of those passing around these disgusting slanders are about on a par with their analytical skills. The caption of the photograph clearly states that the individuals on stage were standing for the national anthem, not the pledge of allegiance. And there is no expectation or requirement to hold one's hand over one's heart during the entirety of the national anthem. The claim that this episode had anything to do with the pledge of allegiance, let alone that Senator Obama refused to say the pledge of allegiance, let alone that the foregoing, even if true, would have any bearing on Obama's loyalty to the Unites States, is a lie with a calculated, vicious purpose.
