Obama Wouldn't Let Muslims In th....Hey, Look at those Boobies!

Two really dense campaign workers wouldn't let headscarf wearing women in a camera shot during an Obama rally. Politico:
Two Muslim women at Barack Obama's rally in Detroit Monday were barred from sitting behind the podium by campaign volunteers seeking to prevent the women's headscarves from appearing in photographs or on television with the candidate.[...]

That incident began when the volunteer asked Aref's friend Ali Koussan and two other friends, Aref's brother Sharif and another young lawyer, Brandon Edward Miller, whether they would like to sit behind the stage. The three young men said they would, but mentioned they were with friends.

The men said the volunteer, a twenty-something African American woman in a green shirt, asked if their friends looked and were dressed like the young men, who were all light-skinned and wearing suits. Miller said yes, but mentioned that one of their friends was wearing a headscarf with her suit.

The volunteer "explained to me that because of the political climate and what's going on in the world and what's going on with Muslim Americans it's not good for her to be seen on TV or associated with Obama," said Koussan, who is a law student at Wayne State University.
Fantastic stuff. I hope the Obama campaign sticks with this new style of politics, that seems eerily similar to old style identity politics.

In more important news...The Obama camp pointed out that the above picture, taken the day after the no headscarf incidents proved that he doesn't hate Muslims. I dunno about that, to me it just proves that he likes 19 year old boobies.
