Daily Mail Launches Weird Attack On Obama's Father

HuffingtonPost.com | Jason Linkins | Posted 06.29.2011 | Media

Here's a clever thing the the U.K.'s Daily Mail did in response to the release of Obama's long-form birth certificate: a brief little item on how Obama's father was a "slippery character." Gathered in this brief are a range of things attesting to the senior Obama's youthful shadiness, including a whiff of polygamy and the fact that his University of Hawaii student advisor noted that he was chasing a lot of tail at college and "cautioned him about his playboy ways." It's implied that the former charge was briefly considered "as a grounds to deny him a visa extension;" the latter basically describes almost every man you ever met at college.
