The mayor of Arlington, Tenn., told his Facebook friends this week that "our muslim president" scheduled Tuesday night's address to the nation about Afghanistan to knock The Charlie Brown Christmas Special off network TV, The Commercial Appeal reports.
(NPR blog post here.)
I couldn't help but think...wouldn't it be awesome if that's actually how things worked? :) Or perhaps terrifying, if taken the other way. Like someone was all, "Hey, wait, we have to reschedule this broadcast so as to not interfere with The Charlie Brown Christmas Special." "Hey, thanks, Media Czar, you're totally right!"
Anyway...it doesn't necessarily imply that Obama is Muslim. Maybe he just hates Charlie Brown.

"A man dressed as an elf is jailed after police in Georgia say he told a mall Santa that he was carrying dynamite."
It's a common enough tale. Man dresses up like an elf, goes to mall to see Santa, threatens Santa with bomb scare. Frankly, I'm all about this story because of the accompanying photo. I mean...just look at this guy.
That is one crazy elf.
