A far-Right ad to pillory

In the spirit of as expansive inquiry as I am personally able to engage, and in the spirit of the Godfather's advice ("Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer.") I am an online subscriber to on of the far-Right's Human Events magazine.

However I have no knowledge what programming language may be used by the transmitting media, and as I cannot guarantee thereby that the fidelity of the magazine's ad (Sneak Preview Of Our Latest Expose Obama Commercial) will enable it to be received fully intact as a mirror of the ad, it is an example of the most despicable of the McCarthy-like tactics employed by the Republican Right. I liken it to a whispering campaign that does not state, but implies via "pivotal questions [that] come to mind" that - YOU may be a child molester 

Some time ago I received an email from a neighbor that intimated via the same type of vehicle that Senator Obama was a Muslim. I immediately copied the email, and even though Rita Adamache (a Canadian, as it turns out!!!) had not provided her name, as an identifier of the source of the email, I did, and always will.   

All of us, if we believe in the demand for evidence, regardless of the proximity to us personally, will be no more accepting of such loathsome behavior.  Personally, I don't care whether my president is a Christian, a Jew, Muslim, an agnostic or atheist, only whether he or she will attempt to govern honorably, wisely, and honestly.

An "Old Army Vet" and liberal, qua liberal, with a passion for open inquiry in a neverending quest for truth unpoisoned by religious superstitions. Per Voltaire: "He who can lead you to believe an absurdity can lead you to commit an atrocity."
