Barack Obama Wasn't Educated In "Madrassa"

Politics needs to change not only in Latin America but in North America itself, let's follow up what the right-wing media had just spread around just to cause damage to image of Obama's Presidential campaign. Greg Sargent says, If this is a sign of how Barack Obama intends to deal with the right-wing media during his Presidential campaign, then I'm all for it.

From the Senator's office:
[...]All of the claims about Senator Obama’s faith and education raised in the Insight Magazine story and repeated on Fox News are false. Senator Obama was raised in a secular household in Indonesia by his stepfather and mother. Obama’s stepfather worked for a U.S. oil company, and sent his stepson to two years of Catholic school, as well as two years of public school. As Obama described it, “Without the money to go to the international school that most expatriate children attended, I went to local Indonesian schools and ran the streets with the children of farmers, servants, tailors, and clerks.” [The Audacity of Hope, p. 274]

To be clear, Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised a Muslim, and is a committed Christian who attends the United Church of Christ in Chicago. Furthermore, the Indonesian school Obama attended in Jakarta is a public school that is not and never has been a Madrassa".

    I got rid of the navbar, tell me what you think.

    I would like to clean up the blogroll extra line or maybe if you told me how you collapsed yours, I would really appreciate it.

    I couldn't take the rounded corners, I like a smooth look.
