Remember all the rumors circulating during last year's campaign that anyone named Barack Hussein Obama had to be a Muslim, no matter how many times Obama said he was a Christian?The White House just sent out an announcement of the president's schedule for the next few days that should settle that issue pretty definitively:

President Obama and his family will mark the beginning of Passover with a Seder at the White House with friends and staff.

Yes, that's right -- it turns out Obama isn't a secret Muslim, after all. He's a secret Jew.
