TN Mayor Apologizes For Claiming Obama Timed Speech To Preempt Charlie Brown

Mayor Russell Wiseman of Arlington, TN is apologizing for claiming President Obama purposely scheduled his speech to conflict with a “Peanuts” Christmas special.

The Commercial Appeal reports Wiseman e-mailed the media Monday to say he regrets offending anyone with what he described as a “poor attempt at tongue-in-cheek humor amongst friends.” He also says he allowed things to go too far.

The town issued a statement on its Web site saying the mayor’s views do not reflect its official ideals and beliefs. Wiseman has since deleted his Facebook account.

Wiseman continues to claim that Obama is a Muslim. Is that also tongue-in-cheek?  I guess one needs a more highly developed sense of humor to appreciate such advanced satire.
