Update

Right on cue, like clockwork, via Ambinder re: Palin today on how Obama Hearts Terrorists:

It’s that Obama “is not a man who sees America as you and I do.”   This is the message that opponents of Obama began with: he’s not one of us. He’s culturally foreign. He doesn’t share your values.  He’s dangerous. It worked a little bit in the summer when there was nothing else to pay attention to. The McCain campaign hopes that it will somehow get those voters who’ve crossed the river of Obama-doubt to jump back across to the other side.

On the plus side, I guess Sarah Palin can now name which specific paper she reads.

  1. not only that. Obama could cause another holocaust too: http://www.oliverwillis.com/2008/10/04/mccain-campaign-says-obama-would-cause-a-holocaust/

  2. Hello Shill people,

    Even Mayor Daley acknowledged Obama and Ayers were friends. For Daley, it was “so what”. For the rest of America, we’ll see.

    Obama started his political life in Ayers’ home. Judgment, anyone?

  3. Steve Chapman:

    How close are McCain and Liddy? At least as close as Obama and Ayers appear to be. In 1998, Liddy’s home was the site of a McCain fundraiser. Over the years, he has made at least four contributions totaling $5,000 to the senator’s campaigns — including $1,000 this year.

    Last November, McCain went on his radio show. Liddy greeted him as “an old friend,” and McCain sounded like one. “I’m proud of you, I’m proud of your family,” he gushed. “It’s always a pleasure for me to come on your program, Gordon, and congratulations on your continued success and adherence to the principles and philosophies that keep our nation great.”

    Which principles would those be? The ones that told Liddy it was fine to break into the office of the Democratic National Committee to plant bugs and photograph documents? The ones that made him propose to kidnap anti-war activists so they couldn’t disrupt the 1972 Republican National Convention? The ones that inspired him to plan the murder (never carried out) of an unfriendly newspaper columnist?

    Liddy was in the thick of the biggest political scandal in American history — and one of the greatest threats to the rule of law. He has said he has no regrets about what he did, insisting that he went to jail as “a prisoner of war.”

    All major politicians are connected to disreputable human beings. That’s politics. Does the Liddy revelation mean we really don’t know about the real John McCain? Or that we can’t trust him? Or that he doesn’t see America like the rest of us?

    Of course not.

    Unless you can prove that the politician in question actually shares the views of these disreputable types–and I see no evidence of that charge in either the Obama or McCain case–then I have two words:

    Who and Cares.

  4. Ah I see. It only doesn’t matter when you can attempt to create an analog scenario to protect the candidate you shill for.

    The transparency of your tactics gets clearer the closer we get to Nov. I don’t expect most of your readers to notice, but don’t think for a moment that I don’t.

    You also might note (privately because I know you would never admit it publicly — it would ruin your barnett meets rapper-wannabe cred) that Chapman claims that Obama has been justly criticized for his ties to Ayers.

    He actually hasn’t in any notable way in the MSM. Questioned in a debate, once. That is it. All the rest comes from new media from the right, which is certainly making noises but so far it hasn’t much reached any where near creating a moment where Obama is in fact “justly criticized”.

    People, like you, like Chapman (yes I know he is ostensibly Right), like the NYTimes, and the rest, are attempting to cover for Obama.

    Please, continue. It is fun watching your acrobatics.
