"They Should Be Ashamed"

"If Barack Obama's campaign wants to suggest that a photo of him wearing traditional Somali clothing is divisive, they should be ashamed." -- Maggie Williams, Hillary Clinton campaign manager.

It appears that the Clinton camp is the source of this photo push. If so, William's statement is the moral equivalent of a candidate's campaign calling a political opponent is "a faggot."

And then, when the other campaign calls them on it, saying, "If his campaign wants to suggest that homosexuality is divisive, they should be ashamed."

I knew that the Clinton campaign machine could be tough and that the Clinton campaign machine could be ruthless, but I never would have guessed that the Clinton campaign machine could be so nakedly, awkwardly stupid.

The Clinton campaign also needs to reigh in Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones. While talking to Pat Buchanan yesterday she kept going on and on about how Somalia is Obama's country of origin. As if he himself was from there.

Actually, it would have been a brilliant move for the Obama campaign to release that picture and make it look like it came from the Clinton camp, thereby making her look like a petty racebaiter. Especially right when Rezko showed up in the press again.

Just sayin'.
