A Kenyan health official says President Barack Obama's older half-brother has been hospitalized with stomach pains and is being tested for cholera.

Local disease surveillance officer James Sande says that Malik Obama, a 51-year-old businessman, was taken to Siaya District Hospital in western Kenya on Tuesday evening.

From this:

Photo: Jo-Lou tribal members in Kenya. Obama’s relatives in Kenya are members of a Jo-Lou tribe, often called Lou for short.

Some facts about Obama’s family. His older half-brother, Abongo Obama, has stated that “the black man must liberate himself from the poisoning influences of European culture.” Abongo is a Muslim and a Jo-Lou tribal activist.

Raila Odinga is the head of the Lou tribe that Obama’s father belonged too. When Obama interrupted a New Hampshire campaign event receive a call from Kenya, it was Odinga on the phone. Odinga is currently involved in a tribal war and advocates Islamic Sharia law in Kenya. Odinga claims Barack Obama is his cousin.

My guess is that the half brother refused to eat the mushrooms, and also declined the trip to Ft. Marcy Park.

No, he will send a basket of DVDs. In NTSC format, of course.

BHO believes so strongly in government control of all charity that he refuses to open his pocketbook even to his own brother.

Man, those folks are black!

Obama isn't even half as black as a Jo-Lou.
It would take a lot of creme to turn coffee that black
to the shade that Obama is.

Odinga claims Barack Obama is his cousin.

I thought this was a fact, can someone clarify?

Guess we’ll have to bail him out too!

Any surprise Obama doesn’t relate to more civilized people in Europe and rather the THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES that he wants to turn U.S. into?

Hmmmm?

Obama identifies with THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES.

You know, if he claimed he was born in Hawaii, he could plug into the American health care system.

And who the hell would ever check?
