In Barrak Obama's most recent radio ad, he attempts to take the William Ayers issue head on. The ad begins by saying that McCain said if the election becomes about the economy, he will lose. And that McCain is now running what the media calls a "smear". Now they switch to defense mode. They start of by saying that "William Ayers is a College Professor". I'll stop right there, because the rest is not that important. To frame the head of a domestic terrorist group as merely a "College Professor", a man that after 911 said he wished he could have done more, is to say that Timothy McVeigh was just a veteran.
What is the difference between Tim McVeigh and William Ayers? It's a college education, political affiliation, and body count. What glorious things might Tim McVeigh have accomplished if he was allowed to go free. He had a disagreement with his country and wanted to change its course just like William Ayers. If John McCain had launched his political career in Timothy McVeigh's living room or if John McCain served on the same board as McVeigh, or if McVeigh ghost wrote McCain's book, you have to ask yourself with all of your intellectual honesty, would the media give McCain the same pass? Would you give McCain the pass. Make no mistake, there is no difference in intent between McVeigh and Ayers.
Once again, since I wrote this post this morning, the content of the post was echoed today by Rush Limbaugh. I must be about 3 hours ahead of him.
