Two More Stellar Endorsements for Obama

1) Hanoi Jane:
"Jane Fonda, the actress and ardent anti-Vietnam war advocate who visited North Vietnam during those hostilities, has endorsed Democrat Barack Obama for president." (source)

2) Busta Rhymes:
"Busta was indirectly asked about his political views in the coming election. Never one to be shy about these things Busta was right behind Barack Obama.

'He just represents the thing that we've all been wanting to see for a long time, you feel me? And at the end of the day it ain't just a black thing, it ain't a white thing, it's just a principally correct thing. He reps principles. And I respect principles. ... I stand strongly by Barack Obama.' (source)

Unfortunately for Obama, despite these earth-shattering new endorsements, the story of his early years in a Muslim school just won't die:

"...Was Sen. Barack Obama a Muslim? Did he ever practice Islam?

The presidential candidate officially rejects the claims, but the issue of Obama's personal faith has re-emerged amid conflicting accounts of his enrollment as a Muslim during elementary school in Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation.

Widely distributed reports have noted in January 1968, Obama was registered as a Muslim at Jakarta's Roman Catholic Franciscus Assisi Primary School under the name Barry Soetoro..." (source)
