    At least Obama is denouncing Santeria:

    Apparently, according to this account, Michelle Obama's mother got involved with Santeria a long time ago when here husband was ill with MS. She got away from it (seemingly) but then had this Santeria priestess visit her at the White House.

    This is really not too surprising. At a shopping center about 2 miles from where I live is one of those Botanica stores that sells potions and candles you burn to get results that mix magic with "Christianity."

    This is the only account I found (someone posted it on a list I'm on) aside from a few other blogs.

    and yet no one knew about this, I don't believe it. No one get sinto the white house without everyone knowing about it.
    Michelle needs new friends, ones who won't go out and tell everyone all about her family business. It doesn't matter if her husband is the president.

    Well, I wondered that as well, but it seems like a pretty out there thing for that guy to put on his blog. It doesn't have the usual over the top exclamatory statements. Michelle Obama's mother lives at the White House and could very well have a Santeria priestess visit her. Such a person would look like anyone else. I am not saying she did, but it would not be beyond belief for me.
