Good Lord

LA Times reports that Obama "bowed to Allah" as a child in Indonesia. Obama's campaign issues a statement saying "Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised a Muslim, and is a committed Christian who attends the United Church of Christ."

Wow, do I not care. What exposure Obama had to Islam as an eight year old is spectacularly uninteresting to me. For that matter, now that Keith Ellison is in Congress I would love if we could all affirm that Obama could be Muslim now, and it wouldn't matter so long as his politics were the same (I'm curious how GOPers would respond if Zalmay Khalilzad ran for office). But regardless, even if this story turns out to be true (as the radical madrassah one wasn't), it is so innane as to border on "Mitt Romney's ancestors were polygamous" territory.
