The Push to ‘Otherize’ Obama

In a recent column, Nick Kristof speaks to the sleaziness of the political campaign launched by conservatives to transform Barack Obama into a Muslim.

Raising doubts about a candidate based on the religion of his grandfather is toxic and profoundly un-American, cracking the melting pot we emerged from. Someday people will look back at the innuendoes about Mr. Obama with the same disgust with which we regard the smears of Al Smith as a Catholic candidate in 1928.
