On the heels of health care, a new Harris poll reveals Republican attitudes about Obama:
* 67 percent of Republicans (and 40 percent of Americans overall) believe that Obama is a socialist.
* 57 percent of Republicans (32 percent overall) believe that Obama is a Muslim
* 45 percent of Republicans (25 percent overall) agree with the Birthers in their belief that Obama was "not born in the United States and so is not eligible to be president"
* 38 percent of Republicans (20 percent overall) say that Obama is "doing many of the things that Hitler did"
* Scariest of all, 24 percent of Republicans (14 percent overall) say that Obama "may be the Antichrist."
The degree of stupidity spewed out by Glenn Beck and Limbaugh and countered by no actual intention to state plain facts by the media is truly frightening.
It's the kind of knuckle-dragging vs. foot-dragging that gets people called racial slurs, toss rocks, and threaten -- and eventually carry out violence.
