Hey idiots -- Obama is not a Muslim

Is the Clinton camp desperate?

Barack Obama's campaign yesterday accused Hillary Clinton’s aides of engaging in “shameful, offensive fear-mongering” by distributing a photograph of him in a turban and tribal costume.

David Plouffe, Mr Obama's campaign manager, was already firing off press statements about it at a time when most voters were still digesting breakfast.

“On the very day that Senator Clinton is giving a speech about restoring respect for America in the world, her campaign has engaged in the most shameful, offensive fear-mongering we’ve seen from either party in this election. This is part of a disturbing pattern,” said Mr Plouffe, alluding to a previous controversy in which one of Mrs Clinton's volunteers had been dismissed for forwarding an e-mail falsely stating that Mr Obama is a Muslim.

My wife recently showed me a chain e-mail she received from some friends of hers in Costa Rica, which contained all those ridiculous lies about Barack Obama, including the falsehood that he is a Muslim. I told her to delete it, but first inform her friends that the e-mail is pure bunk.

That being said, Obama's actual church should raise a lot of eyebrows. One wonders when the 'ol MSM will ever get around to looking at it.

They brought Obama's church up in the debate tonight and Obama was hesitant to denounce Farrakhan as a whole or Pastor Wright. I think his words were "I denounce his anti-semitic views." Clearly he was trying to score points by denouncing Farrakhan's Antisemitism without fully rejecting Farrakhan in totality and Clinton called him on it and he made a weak concession.
