Obama the terrorist?

Leonard Doyle writes on our blog about  claims from the McCain camp that 'Barack Obama's friend tried to kill my family', while McCain's 'warm-up man' refers to Obama as Barack Hussein Obama. And he's not the only one.

Question: Is this level of sniping unusual in US politics or is the McCain camp getting seriously desparate?

Edit: More on the claims from McCain supporters that Obama is a traitor.

That is the same logic that the McCain campaign used to say that Palin knows about Russia because her state is their "neighbor" and that Russia can be seen on a clear day from the shore.

Just wait. In a few years it'll be replaced with something else.

Unfortunately, human beings will always be afraid of stuff they don't know.

It is Arabic... and not all Arabs practice Islam. Actually, there are quite a number of Christians in the Arab World.

But some people don't see a distinction between Arabs and Muslims. So, of course they will cling onto that name and its origins and run with it.
