Shaming the Hatemongers

I may have left a link to this earlier, but it's so good and it really stuck with me, so I want to highlight it more strongly. I didn't know this:
In 1941, shortly after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor two brothers, related to six US presidents, enlisted in the Army.

In 1944, these brothers, Stanley and Ralph Dunham went ashore at Normandy and served their Nation fighting the Nazi’s across France, Italy and Germany. Another young American, Stanley’s, brother-in-law, Charles Payne, fought with Patton’s Third Army and was among the troops that liberated the prisoners at the Nazi Death camp of Buchenwald.

In 1945, upon return from Europe, Stanley and his wife Madelyn, who had served the nation’s war efforts by working on a B-29 assembly line, settled down and started a family.

In 1961, a grandson was born to the Dunham’s at the Kapi’olani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital, in Honolulu United States. In 2008, that grandson won the election for President of the United States by a 9,522,186 plurality.
Read the whole thing. It's a moving post and the best indictment of the anti-Obama hatefest I've ever seen.

Introduction of reality into this is futile. If, as I read in TPM, a third of NJ Republicans think the man actually has 666 on his scalp, his father could be God almighty and they wouldn't care.

It might be more profitable scanning the literature for articles on how to treat mass hysteria ... even still, what would be the point?

I'm convinced no amount of reasoning or facts will crack the cognitive dissonance. But I really didn't know that about Obama and I thought it was interesting.
