"If you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world," misdirected Magician-in-Chief Barack Obama on the eve of his latest Mea-Culpa-Middle-East Tour. Satirist-in-Chief ScrappleFace puts the President's fatuousness in perspective:

Does that mean that we are a nation of cat worshipers?" asks Connecticut Yankee rhetorically in the comments. As Gayle Miller responds, "With cats, being worshipped is a given to their minds!" A king can look at a cat?
Update II: Lots more objects of national worship at Modulator's Friday Ark #246.
