One of the strangest images of an already bizarre week in politics was watching an elderly woman at a John McCain rally in Minnesota say she didn’t trust Barack Obama because “he’s an Arab.”
I started to wonder, just who is this misinformed, rightwing idiot? Even for a McCainiac, this poor creature seemed even more off the hook than most.
It turns out her name is Gayle Quinnell. Quinnell, 75, got her information from her local library and she’s not going to let facts get in the way when it comes to Obama.
