After writing a column Friday weighing Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential prospects, I heard from half a dozen concerned readers passing along an e-mail letter they’d received that claims Obama is a secret Muslim, with radical terrorist ties!
This would be funny if it weren’t so pathetic and scurrilous. The e-mail is just a small taste of what right-wing smear artists have in store for Obama in the coming campaign.
For the record, Obama has been a practicing Christian for at least two decades. Here’s a site that thoroughly debunks the e-mail charges. A Washington Post story also finds no substance to them.
