Oh, Hillary. Ohhhhh, Hillary.
If Barack Obama’s campaign wants to suggest that a photo of him wearing traditional Somali clothing is divisive, they should be ashamed. Hillary Clinton has worn the traditional clothing of countries she has visited and had those photos published widely. This is nothing more than an obvious and transparent attempt to distract from the serious issues confronting our country today and to attempt to create the very divisions they claim to decry. We will not be distracted.
See, it’s you who’s prejudiced for finding any untoward intentions in her waving around a photo of Obama wearing a turban. Note well, per Ambinder, the non-denial here that the campaign is circulating the photo. Painfully obvious exit question: If the photo’s so mundane and inconsequential, why are they circulating it in the first place?
