Checking In With Limbaugh

Rush Limbaugh:
Do you know [Obama] has not one shred of African-American blood?


He's Arab. You know, he's from Africa. He's from Arab parts of Africa. ... [H]e's not African-American. The last thing that he is is African-American."
Obama was born in Hawaii, of a white mother from Kansas and a Kenyan father. After his father left the family when he was age 2, his mother married an Indonesian man and the family moved to Indonesia for 4 years. Obama then returned to Hawaii and lived with his grandparents there from 5th grade through high school. He then went to college in LA, NYC, and then moved to Chicago.
