Powell says Yes to Obama

Gen. Colin Powell, a Republican, endorsed Barack Obama yesterday. In the interview he comes out against those who keep calling Obama a Muslim. One of the best lines in the interview, addressing the claims that Obama is a Muslim (he's not), "What if he is [a Muslim]? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country?"

That's been my question from the beginning. Why does it matter if he is, and I know he's not (I've had to tell my mother this time and again as she forwards me those stupid email chains). Aren't we supposed to be the country built on religious freedom? The freedom to worship as we choose? I mean, if we're going to get all Christianity on people's butts, then all those who worship money as they do in America should be sent straight to the big house (or somewhere).

Very well said! Those who worship the almighty economy need to go to the big house as well!
