Bob Kerrey Uses Obama Muslim Slur in Endorsing Clinton

This can't be a mistake. Kerrey is a politician, and I'm sure he reads the papers. He couldn't have made these outrageous comments about Obama without it being planned. And if they weren't by design, why hasn't Hillary distanced herself from the "Muslim" remark. The Clinton gang are still up to the dirty tricks that have gotten them in such trouble lately:
Kerrey continued, "It's probably not something that appeals to him, but I like the fact that his name is Barack Hussein Obama, and that his father was a Muslim and that his paternal grandmother is a Muslim. There's a billion people on the planet that are Muslims and I think that experience is a big deal." He added, "He's got a whale of a lot more intellectual talent than I've got as well."

[...]He veered back to Clinton: "She does inspire my confidence. She can do the job. In my view she's the complete package." Kerrey was reminded that his 1992 bid for the Democratic nomination -- the year Bill Clinton won -- came two years into his Senate tenure, just like Obama. In retrospect, he said his lack of experience "turned out to be very important...I didn't win, you may have noticed." But he added, "Obama's got the sort of experiences that are much different from mine."

[...]The Kerrey endorsement marked the start of a 5-day blitz through Iowa by Clinton and a cast of surrogates, including childhood friends and professional colleagues, as well as her husband, former President Bill Clinton. The senator herself will travel by a helicopter dubbed the "Hill-A-Copter."

[...]Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton celebrated one high-profile endorsement, from the Des Moines Register's editorial board, by announcing a second: former Sen. Bob Kerrey, the renegade Nebraskan-turned-New Yorker.

[...]Now president of the New School in New York City, Kerry previously served as senator and governor of Nebraska. A Navy SEAL in Vietnam, he was wounded in combat, losing the lower portion of one leg. During his years in public office, Kerrey earned a reputation as an independent operator who followed his own script.
