Barack Obama's Polygamist Roots

Well, here's another instance of messaging fail from the bright lights of the Democrat Party Obama cult.

From Ben Jacobs at The Daily Beast, "Montana Gov. Democrat Brian Schweitzer: Mitt Romney's ‘Family Came From a Polygamy Commune in Mexico’." (Via Memeorandum.)

Wow! Mitt Romney's really a freak!

Oh wait. Obama's family was an African polygamist commune, according to David Maraniss:
The line of polygamists in Obama’s family can be traced back generations in western Kenya, where it was an accepted practice within the Luo (pronounced LOO-oh) tribe. His great-grandfather, Obama Opiyo, had five wives, including two who were sisters. His grandfather, Hussein Onyango, had at least four wives, one of whom, Akumu, gave birth to the president’s father, Barack Obama, before fleeing her abusive husband. Obama Sr. was already married when he left Kenya to study at the University of Hawaii, where he married again. His American wife-to-be, Stanley Ann Dunham, was not yet 18 and unaware of his marital situation when she became pregnant with his namesake son in 1961.
So, Barack Obama, Sr., was a polygamist. Now that doesn't fit the left's Romney outsider meme too well, now does it? In fact, that Schweitzer dude just scored a ridiculous own-goal.
