The Slip

Barack slipped on ABC's This Week today, getting confused about what religion he practices.

"Let's not play games," he said. "What I was suggesting -- you're absolutely right that John McCain has not talked about my Muslim faith. And you're absolutely right that that has not come."

Mr. Stephanopoulos interrupted with, "Christian faith."

"My Christian faith," Mr. Obama said quickly. "Well, what I'm saying is that he hasn't suggested that I'm a Muslim. And I think that his campaign's upper echelons have not, either.
How big a blunder is this? With polls indicating that 13% or so of Americans already think Barack is Muslim, this clip floating around is bound to add to the confusion.
