Worst "Moran" In The World: Arlington, Tennessee Mayor, Russell Wiseman (UPDATED)

UPDATE II:

The Mayor made "Worst Person" AGAIN tonight for his lame-ass apology!

UPDATE I:

The Mayor has now apologized & canceled his FaceBook account. Sounds more like he's sorry he was caught:

Wiseman sent out an e-mail to the media on Monday saying, "I regret that I offended anyone with my poor attempt at tongue-in-cheek humor amongst friends ... I allowed things to go too far," The Commercial Appeal reported.

The town also 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.

More details as they develop online and in Wednesday's News Sentinel.

ORIGINAL POST:
Perhaps you heard about the ignorant Arlington, Tennessee Mayor, Russell Wiseman, blamed "Muslim" Obama for deliberately giving his Afghan speech at a time that would pre-empt a broadcast of ABC's airing of A Charlie Brown Christmas?

The Commercial Appeal transcribed Wiseman's Facebook posting, which is accessible only to the mayor's Facebook friends:

Ok, so, this is total crap, we sit the kids down to watch 'The Charlie Brown Christmas Special' and our muslim [sic] president is there, what a load ... try to convince me that wasn't done on purpose. Ask the man if he believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and he will give you a 10 minute disertation [sic] about it....[w]hen the answer should simply be 'yes'....

Well, he made "Worst Person" on last night's Countdown, where Keith Olbermann really went to town on this moran:
