Idiot of the week: Tennessee Mayor who criticized Obama for pre-empting "Charlie Brown"

Maybe I'm feeling a little more emboldened to call out the sheer idiocy of some elected officials who criticized Barack Obama after seeing satirist Bill Maher do it all night long last in Tampa, but I can't let this go unchecked.

That is, this report that the Mayor of Arlington, Tennessee, Russell Wiseman, who blasted President Obama the other day after his speech at West Point.

According to the story,

Wiseman made the statements on his Facebook page, where he declared Obama to be a Muslim. Only people on Wiseman's "friend's list" had access to the post. He has more than 1,600 friends on Facebook.

"Ok, so, this is total crap, we sit the kids down to watch 'The Charlie Brown Christmas Special' and our muslim president is there, what a load.....try to convince me that wasn't done on purpose. Ask the man if he believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and he will give you a 10 minute disertation (sic) about it....w...hen the answer should simply be 'yes'...."

The story is linked on The Drudge Report, by bottom feeder Matt Drudge, who has been perpetuating such pap since before Obama was inaugurated this earlier year.
