Rep. Steve King (R-IA) went on Fox News yesterday and reiterated his comments that electing Obama would be a victory for the terrorists:

There’s so much nonsense here, where do you start?

But I will say that the Obama camp better dispense with its standard “there’s no place for this in our politics” response. They’re getting killed with this kind of stuff. And if they think they can stay aloof from it until November, then he deserves the fate of Michael Dukakis and John Kerry. But they’ll be lucky to make it that long. Bill Bradley showed you can be an aloof loser in the primary, too.

It doesn’t matter whether you support Obama or Hillary, it’s got to give you pause that the leading Democrat in the race (at least in terms of delegates) can’t handle these predictable attacks more effectively.
