Avoiding Muslims

Apparently, the Obama campaign is worried about playing up the associations between him and Muslims. So they are going out of their way to avoid being seen with Muslims. At least that's what this appears to suggest.

What Obama's campaign is doing is not just wrong. It is stupid.

They are afraid of adding fuel to the "Obama is a secret muslim" smears? Well, avoiding Muslims won't stop the smears. It will just attract attention to the smears. In fact, it will add weight to those smears because the smear-meisters will be able to say, "He doesn't want to be seen with Muslims because he is a SECRET Muslim."

It's messaging 101 folks: you draw more attention to something when you purposely try to not draw attention to something.
