Eight Legs? It's Not That Girl in India, It's Baracknophobia!

Eight Legs? It's Not That Girl in India, It's Baracknophobia!

Though the infant born with eight limbs in India just had successful surgery to remove her extra appendages, a multilegged creature of a different sort showed up on The Daily Show this week. Apparently, the phobia, classified scientifically (it's true — they're doing studies) as "the irrational fear of hope" has wormed its way into to the very fibers of the Obama campaign. OK. They're not doing studies.

Skewering both the incident this week where the Obama campaign moved some Muslim supporters out of a picture with the candidate, ("Muslim-adjacent" is apparently a presidential deal-breaker) as well as the media coverage of it, Stewart has a few more faux-tos the Obama camp doesn't want you to see. I don't care if he is punching that baby, it's a darn cute kid. Do you have a little Baracknophobia of your own?

Citizen, if you ever run for president, this line will haunt you: "I don't care if he is punching that baby, it's a darn cute kid."
