Apparently 23% of Texans are hoodwinked by an urban legend

Poll finds 23% of Texans think Obama is Muslim (h/t BLCKDGRD). Let's just use this opportunity to remind our readers of snopes.com, which happens, lo and behold, to have already debunked that particular myth. As I've mentioned before, snopes.com has a fairly extensive dossier on the various myths being spread about Obama, including, of course, information about each myth's veridicality. I would also recommend replying to mass emails spreading urban myths about Obama (or any of the other candidates) with the appropriate snopes.com link to the truth. Although most of the recipients are among the willfully ignorant who will not appreciate being pointed at actual facts, some may be conscientious enough to check things out.
