Bob Kerrey, Bill Shaheen, and Mark Penn issue joint statement:
We deplore all the talk about former cocaine user and possible African-American drug dealer, Barack Hussein Obama, being the Islamic Manchurian Candidate merely because he attended a madrassa overseas while living among billions of crazed Muslims, which included his father and paternal grandmother. As if that's a reason you can’t trust him. And anyway, his dad was an atheist, so that should totally defuse the religion issue. On the contrary, the fact that B. Hussein Obama has spent so much time with people that want to destroy America is a tremendous political asset which he probably didn't realize at the time since he was so busy. Busy in kindergarten writing about his presidential ambitions after which he chose Christianity as his faith. Instead, it vanquishes that pernicious stereotype of the "underperforming black youth" who will always be a disappointment, even when he grows up.
There is a smear campaign going on, it's outrageous, and the Clinton campaign will have nothing to do with it.
