Ask a Stupid Question....
Obama takes heat from ... Charles Manson
By David Jackson, USA TODAY
Well, presidents get criticized by a lot of people.
But we don't think President Obama will be too upset over being attacked by Charles Manson.
Obama is a "slave to Wall Street," says Manson, the cult leader who is serving a life sentence for conspiracy in the 1969 murders of actress Sharon Tate and others (the basis for the book, Helter Skelter).
Manson tells Vanity Fair Spain: "I think Obama is an idiot for doing what he does. I do not know how you were able to cheat to get there. Not realize what they are doing. They are playing with him."
Manson reportedly spoke in Spanish.
So we don't know if his odd comments reflect a poor command of the language, a bad translation -- or simply the ravings of a very, very weird individual.
