Oh, Good, The Grey Lady Finally Covers Bill Ayers, SarahCuda Bites Barry’s Arm Off

You know what is coming, right? After all these long months of ignoring unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and his connections to Democrat presidential candidate Barack H. Obama, the NY Times has finally published a story, page A1 of the Saturday edition, now that they finally have their spin down

A review of records of the schools project and interviews with a dozen people who know both men, suggest that Mr. Obama, 47, has played down his contacts with Mr. Ayers, 63. But the two men do not appear to have been close. Nor has Mr. Obama ever expressed sympathy for the radical views and actions of Mr. Ayers, whom he has called “somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was 8.”

Granted, the Times does expose who Ayers is, but, they spend the majority of the article, particularly on page 2 of the Internet story, telling us what a little darling Ayers has become, and there really is nothing to cause concern over the minuscule association between Ayers and Obama.

In fact, according to several people involved, Mr. Ayers played no role in Mr. Obama’s appointment.

Since 2002, there is little public evidence of their relationship.

Mr. Obama’s friends said that history was utterly irrelevant to judging the candidate, because Mr. Ayers was never a significant influence on him. Even some conservatives who know Mr. Obama said that if he was drawn to Ayers-style radicalism, he hid it well.

“If Barack Obama says he’s willing to talk to foreign leaders without preconditions,” Mr. Hayden said, “I can imagine he’d be willing to talk to Bill Ayers about schools. But I think that’s about as far as their relationship goes.”

What’s that phrase I am looking for? …….. Willful suspension of belief. That’s it.

Captain Ed:

If John McCain had spent ten years on charitable boards with someone less egregious than abortion bombers — say, with Randall Terry of Operation Rescue — the New York Times would have Page One, in-depth reporting, complete with teams of reporters combing through the minutes of the board meetings.  Hell, the New York Times infamously smeared McCain with allegations of a sexual affair based on nothing but gossip from two disgruntled ex-staffers last February, and spent days rolling that out, using four reporters on the story.  For the Obama/Ayers connection, they have Scott Shane telling us that there’s nothing to see here.

Tom Maguire destroys the Times. Gotta read the whole thing.

Meanwhile, SarahCuda found the shiny watch on Barry’s wrist

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin on Saturday accused Democrat Barack Obama of “palling around with terrorists” because of his association with a former 1960s radical, stepping up the campaign’s effort to portray Obama as unacceptable to American voters. 

Palin told a group of donors at a private airport, “Our opponent … is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect, imperfect enough, that he’s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country.” She also said, “This is not a man who sees America as you see America and as I see America.”

You can just visualize the AP reporter putting their nose in the air and sniffing disdainfully. They should be concentrating on learning first aid for all the body parts The One is going to lose.
