Putting Ayers and Wright squarely back on the table
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, September 02, 2008

In the unseemly lefty feeding frenzy which is the Palin nomination, mistakes are being made. And its funny - they are slamming McCain for not "vetting" Palin well enough, but are ready to run with any rumor that floats by concerning Palin.

For instance, it appears that the Obama campaign went off half-cocked before checking out a rumor floated by Democratic Representative Robert Wexler. That rumor claimed Palin was a Pat Buchanan supporter. The campaign issued a press release which claimed that Palin was a Buchanan supporter and that Buchanan was a "nazi sympathizer".

Love the "new politics":

Interestingly this was discussed with Pat Buchannan on MSNBC - video here.

Godwin's law with a vengeance. Buchanan, of course, denies it rather vehemently but then makes the very astute observation that Obama spokesman Mark Bubriski just screwed the pooch:
PAT BUCHANAN: If they do that, you end the moratorium on Rev. Jeremiah Wright, because Barack Obama's pastor and spiritual advisor for 15 years did run an anti-Semitic church, does run an anti-white church and has engaged in racist rants. And we were told that, look, this is off the table, those sort of things. And them to have them come up and, come after me, you open up somebody's associations? You open those up. You open up all of yours.
Not only Wright, but William Ayers as well. If you're going to claim associations of any sort (even when not true) are indicators of someone's 'character' and 'judgment' as Bubriski's statement contends, then Obama's associations with Wright and Ayers provide the very same indications, don't they?

I can hear the cry now...

They weren’t nazi’s they were just very committed leftists, some of who were willing to use violence to advance their cause.

Oliver has opened up the spouse attacks again: He is triumphantly announcing that Todd once belonged to the Alaska Independent Party and that somehow proves something horrible about Palin.

The Left is acting really stupid.

Ott Scerb, can you please do a pre-emptive in this thread?

....god these idiots are painful to watch. We’ve got their presidential candidate dininishing himself by comparing his experience level to our vice-presidential candidate.

And his big experience? "I run a campaign"

Sweet lord.

Running for president = presidential level experience.

Only from the Erbian candidate!

Considering the number of anti-semites Obama has on his staff currently, this might have been a bad idea...

Can Democrats snatch defeat from the jaws of apathetic victory?

Fox News is looking into theAyers thing. Frankly, what we already know should preclude Obama from being a viable candidate.

I’m pretty sure Obama will go down to defeat in November, but it is sad that such a pathetic, anti-american candidate can make it so far.

It must be those infamous "low level staffers", that Obama has been leading as part of his presidential training, who put out this wonderful POS.

You dense righties will never get it, will you? Why don’t you heed the advice of my esteemed professor, whose godlike powers of political insight have all the 18 year old girls in class swooning**, and just give up already?

Give up, I say. The people have spoken. I know. I’m 19 and I read Huffpo three times a day. The Electoral College is already in session and McSlime/Palineophyte is no where in sight. Nowhere! Everyone loves Obama even Diebold.

We all know more than you oil-soaked warmongers do about Iraq, even you stupid Army and Navy rifle cleaners who are on the Blackwater payroll. Just last week all us students got A’s in Prof. Scerb’s annual "Bush Makes Me Cry" Diorama project.

Mine was titled "It’s All Just an Oil Power Ghraib." You won’t believe the research I had to do for it. I had to go all the way back to pre-Rovian darkness times, 2000, to read each and every article that Robert Scheer wrote about Dick Cheney! With all this info in my head, I can barely play Sidoki while listening to Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now!

Now I gotta audit Advanced Feminist Techniques for the Metrosexual 101, so I can’t write anymore today. But why waste time on you Caribou killers!

***Rumor has it that Bristol Palin has audited Prof. Scerb’s class from time to time, last was in May, I believe. Halliburton!

Where did Erb graduate from anyway? Or is that not an issue in this campaign?

I’m not sure where Prof. Scerb graduated from, but I’m sure he’s read everything by Howard Zinn and Leonard Peltier, so you know, that’s at least PhD level.
