ADVICE FOR OBAMA: “Obama Should Embrace His Muslim Heritage.” That hasn’t been the strategy so far. In fact, that’s the complaint: “He vociferously denies being a Muslim as if it were a slur.”
UPDATE: Bill Bradley thinks this post suggests that Obama is a Muslim. I told him that anyone who’s been paying attention — which certainly includes InstaPundit readers — knows that Obama has a Muslim heritage but isn’t a Muslim now. Indeed, that’s the point of the linked article. But the sensitivity on this question does suggest that Obama and his supporters think there’s something wrong with being a Muslim, which was also the point of the linked article.
ANOTHER UPDATE: So thinking about this, is it just out-of-bounds to use the words “Obama” and “Muslim” in the same sentence? Does that join the ever-lengthening list of things we’re not allowed to talk about?
