What to make of the Obama "Muslim photo" kerfuffle?
If you've somehow missed it, the big Drudge-dredged teapot tempest in the current news cycle surrounds the "circulation" of a 2006 photograph of Barack Obama in traditional African garb.
Drudge gets a major two-fer out of it, feeding the Obama-is-a-Muslim "smear" and feeding the racist-Hillary-hits-below-the-belt truism as she attempts an 11th hour comeback.
The Clinton camp seems to be in non-denial denial mode:
Clinton campaign officials didn't confirm or deny a role in the incident; instead, they tried to turn the tables on the Obama camp by saying its indignation over the photo's publication is itself an effort to divide and distract voters.
Maggie Williams, Clinton's new chief of staff, pointed out that Clinton was often photographed in Muslim garb when traveling on behalf of her husband in the 1990s.
"Enough," Williams wrote. "If Barack Obama's campaign wants to suggest that a photo of him wearing traditional Somali clothing is divisive, they should be ashamed.
I'm reserving judgment until I know the, what are those called? Oh, yeah. Facts.
