Even Indonesians get it. Amazing how many foreign nations are far wiser, and less ignorant, than half of the American electorate.....

The school where he was called Barry Soetero?
Is this the school where he registered as Muslim?
Is this where he studied the Koran?
Is this where he memorized the Muslim Arabic call to prayer?

I wonder how many Indonesian kids think it’s a statue of a space alien?
Or maybe of Tiger Woods?
