I am confident the answer to the question posed in my headline is a resoundingÂ no, despite vicious blog attacks saying it. As is the fact Barack Obama does not pal around with terrorists, as the vice presidential candidate claimed today.
I made sure to qualify my headline by closing it with a question mark. Something the folks over at FOX need to do to with most headlines they run, it protects them from libel charges. Trouble is Governor Palin made no attempt to qualify her statement. She just out right lied when she said Senator Obama “pals around” with terrorists.
â€œThis is not a man who sees America as you see it, and how I see America,â€ Ms. Palin, the Republican vice-presidential nominee, said in Colorado, according to a pool report. â€œWe see America as the greatest force for good in this world. If we can be that beacon of light and hope for others who seek freedom and democracy and can live in a country that would allow intolerance in the equal rights that again our military men and women fight for and die for all of us. â€œOur opponent though, is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect that heâ€™s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country.â€
For God’s sake how desperate can the woman get? Forty years ago, When Barack Obama was 8 years old. A young hippie named Bill Ayers co founded the radical left anti-war anti establishment weathermen. But Mr. Ayers is not a wanted terrorist, nor in fact was he ever tried or convicted of terrorism. He is a professor in the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, holding the honor of Distinguished Professor.
Yes almost half a century ago,Â the weathermen were a violent left wing hippie group, but what in the hell does that have to do with Barack Obama? Senator Barack Obama and Professor Ayers are not pals, intimates or hanging around planning the destruction of the republic.
The absurdity of the Alaskan GovernorsÂ statement, signal the campaign has accepted the reality of the polls and embraced the last refuge of losers; political bunker mentality now grips the campaign. I can even picture the image of Senator McCain hold up in his Sedona retreat watching with a scowl has his political forces retreat from Michigan. Perhaps remarking with resignation to a chain smoking ferret faced aid, unleash the swift boats snerdley.
Senator if you could please nudge over just a tad sir, the fat lady is done warming up and needs to join you in your corner for the perfunctory photo op.
