Hat tip to Sweetness & Light and more information from Gateway Pundit that shows the original picture found the National Examiner, was shown by Hans-Geeska Afrika Online.
I only have one thing to say.
Take a good, hard look at who the Democrats might just support to become the president of Kenya...OOOOOPS... sorry, I mean the President of the United States of America.
A picture speaks a thousand words, doesn't it?
Looks like Miss Beth is on the same wavelength here.
[Update] From the comment section:
Susan, the costume is Kenyan tribal, not Muslim. Kenya itself is 70% Christian and only 10% Muslim.

Thanks Jason. I have never seen Christians dress that way and that picture was taken and he is dressed as a "somolia elder"U.S. Senator Barack Obama, right, is dressed as a Somali Elder by Sheikh Mahmed Hassan, left, during his visit to Wajir, a rural area in northeastern Kenya, near the borders with Somalia and Ethiopia.
Nearly all Somalis are Sunni Muslims. Practicing Islam reinforces distinctions that set Somalis apart from their immediate African neighbors, many of whom are either Christians (particularly the Amhara and others of Ethiopia) or adherents of indigenous African faiths.
So, if he s dressed as a "Somalia" elder and nearly all Somlias are Sunni Muslims... then despite who lives in that area...HE is dressed as a Muslim.
Your information that 10% are Muslim's there just makes it worse that he would dress that way in my mind.

So folks...is it better that the area is 10% Muslim yet Obama chose to dress as a Somalia elder, which they are admittedly nearly all Sunni Muslims, or is it worse?
