Today’s Best/Worst Uncorrected Anonymous Quote of the Misinformed

From Maureen Dowd’s column, Butterflies Aren’t Free.

In a restaurant in Greenwood on Tuesday, Obama approached an older white guy who waved him off, muttering afterwards to a reporter: “I can’t stand him. He’s a Muslim. He’s not even pro-American as far as I’m concerned.” [emph added]
