Obama's fear of Muslims

Nate Silver had fellow Baseball Prospectus author Rany Jazayerli do a kind of guest post on the subject of Mazen Asbahi's resignation from the Obama campaign. I first read about the issue when Steve Clemons screamed bloody murder about it.

Anyway it turns out Rany, unlike Steve Clemons, is Muslim, and he isn't at all pleased either:

If Obama won't stand up to the flimsiest of accusations linking someone in his campaign, however remotely and ridiculously, to terrorists, then I’m not sure what he'll stand up against. I realize this kind of feckless approach worked so well for Michael Dukakis and John Kerry, Barack, but could you act like a man for once and grow a pair? Maybe Hillary will lend you hers.

Read the whole thing.
