A conservative magazine started a rumor that Obama attended a madrassa in Indonesia that taught fundamentalist Islam. Then they falsely sourced Hillary Clinton's campaign for the tip. This might have been a pretty ingenious campaign smear a few years ago, but these Rove-like tricks don't seem to work anymore. CNN did some good, old-fashioned journalism and quickly debunked the story. Republican strategists should denounce these tactics if they want any chance in '08. The American public is finally wise to it.
