No, it's Mama Sarah, the one in Kenya, Obama's Moslem step-grandmother twice removed. The one he has to talk to through an interpreter.

Sarah Obama was the third wife of Obama’s paternal grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama. She was just 16 years old when she married Obama’s grandfather, an older man who was her father’s friend.

Initially, many thought that it was a joke when it was announced that Mrs Sarah Onyango Obama, the step grandmother of US Senator Barack Obama, the 2008 Democratic Presidential candidate would grace the event — America’s Independence Day celebrations.

It's a big, long, wet kiss for Obama's Muslim granny twice removed. Read it all.

Who was in attendance?
