During the Clinton years, the right-wing smear machine put about a "Clinton Body Count", accusing him of involvement in various murders to cover up imagined crimes. Naturally, they now have one for Barrack Obama. My favourite - for its sheer insanity - is this one:

DARSANO RAHARDJO - Childhood classmate of Barack Obama when he attended a madrassa in Indonesia. Was found with his head cut off in a Jakarta alley way in 1970. Many children at the school attributed Rahardjo’s murder to the young Barack Obama. It was likely done as an initiation ritual, since Islam demands that a boy spill another’s blood before the age of ten to prove their loyalty to Allah.
Which explains why Islam supports polygyny. It's not a cultural holdover from the desert, no, it's because they intentionally kill half their male population at age 9. Can I have some of those drugs? They'd be quite useful next time I need to write some drooling insanity. OTOH, given where they lead, maybe not.

But what I really want to know is why doesn't Helen Clark have one of these? Surely our local sewer is deranged enough to come up with something?
