HMM: Rep. Ellison: Clinton Trying To Reap Benefit Of Obama-Muslim Smear. "I think that Barack Obama' s Democratic opponents will say and do anything to try and win." Well, yes.

But why does Ellison think calling someone a Muslim is a "smear"? If somebody called me a Muslim, I wouldn't feel smeared, any more than if someone called me Jewish.

UPDATE: Running with the story at Protein Wisdom.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Ali Eteraz: "Muslim is not a smear."
