So Will He Stop Accusing McCain of Playing the Muslim Card Now?

Barack Obama played the muslim card himself yesterday.

He defended himself against Sarah Palin’s comment that “Al Qaeda terrorists still plot to inflict catastrophic harm on America — he’s worried that someone won’t read them their rights?”

How did he defend himself? By saying that we shouldn’t mock the constitution — we would have to grant habeas corpus rights to Al Qaeda. Brilliant.

Along the way, there was this fun passage:

“The reason we have that safeguard,” he said, is “we don’t always have the right person. “You might think it’s Mohammed the Terrorist, but its really Mohammed the Cabdriver. You might think its Barack the Bomb- thrower, but what you really have is Barack the guy running for president.

So, if he’s going to muslim-bait against himself, can he at least stop blaming the GOP of doing it against him? It’s never been us to begin with. It was the Hillary forces who put out the autocalls in the primary emphasizing his middle name.
