23% of Texans are Ignorant

Hot. Humid. Desert. Flat. Home of our current President. What could make Texas worse?

Poll finds 23% of Texans think Obama is Muslim
A University of Texas poll to be released today shows Republican presidential candidate John McCain and GOP Sen. John Cornyn leading by comfortable margins in Texas, as expected. But the statewide survey of 550 registered voters has one very surprising finding: 23 percent of Texans are convinced that Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama is a Muslim....
The Obama-is-a-Muslim confusion is caused by fallacious Internet rumors and radio talk-show gossip. McCain went so far at one of his town hall meetings to grab a microphone from a woman who claimed that Obama was an Arab.

Texas is not all flat desert. The desert part is not humid at all. Eastern Texas is hilly and covered in trees, mostly pines. East Texas is very humid. The whole state is very hot in the summer, but sometimes the temperature goes down to zero in the winter. Right now the trees are just beginning to change.

We are not all losers either. However, an overwhelming majority are. It is simply mind boggling how so many people can be so stupid and ignorant all in one state. Of course, Texas is a big state.
