#1 What a lovely setting for his shahada!

(Ok, it's more likely to be yet another stop on his "Why America Sucks" tour, but you never know.)

#2 "It is highly unusual for a non-Muslim to speak at the mosque."

Maybe he will even get another honorary degree?

#3 Appears he's well practiced and all limbered up with his genuflecting.

#4 It'll be good practice for his commencement address at Notre Dame ...

#6 He will, of course, insist on the covering up of all religious symbols as he did at Georgetown, correct?

CORRECT???

#7 And I feel sure that the Mufti will greatly appreciate the scores of Secret Service prowling around the place.

#8 Well, barry isn't european/white (he's not actually a black per se, but he's definitively embraced his "not whitey" identity, and that's what got him where he is now anyway), has a full muslim name set (except if you consider the sotero alternate ID), his deadbeat daddy was a muslim, he spent his formative years at a madrassa where from all accounts he was a devout muslim kiddie, no muslim leader or scholar ever has denounced him as an apostate...

So, even if he's not REALLY a muslim, just a practicing commie, just think of the banquet scene in "Freaks" : "one of us! One of us! One of us!...."
Less than 8 years after 9/11. Makes you really wonder, doesn't it?

#10 Geez, balthazar, it's almost seems like you think there might be...weapons in a mosque! It's a Religion of PeaceĀ™, ya know...

#11 I'd love to have the secret service turn the place upside down and shake hard, no telling what would fall out of the cracks.
