Here's a great article by Eli at FireDogLake that points out the utter hypocrisy of the Palin/McCain fantasy that alleges Barack Obama had some kind of close relationship with Weather Underground founder Bill Ayers:
So Sarah Palin wants to accuse Barack Obama of "pallin' around with terrorists" because he has a very distant acquaintance with a member of the Weather Underground? Really?So, we have a secessionist banging the VP candidate (no, I'm not talking about Jill Biden), and a guy who ran with such a rotten group of corrupt politicians that he's part of the group named the "Keating Five".
That's an awfully daring strategy, considering that not only is she sleeping with a former member of the Alaskan Independence Party (AIP), a radical separatist movement whose founder died in an explosives deal gone bad, she's cc'ing him on government e-mails and letting him sit in on government meetings.
And if that's not enough, she tried to install a right-wing militia member on Wasilla's city planning board when she was mayor, and she recorded a very supportive video address for the AIP's convention this year, telling the secessionists to "keep up the good work."
So, what's worse? Being vaguely associated with anti-American radicals, or marrying them and giving them pep talks and a prominent role in your government?
And I haven't even mentioned John McCain's good friends Charles Keating and G. Gordon Liddy. Whoops! I guess I just have.
Yeah, I'll stand that up to a passing acquaintance with a guy who dropped his radical ways and was working to effect positive change in his local educational system any day.
If we're going for strict accuracy here, Sarah Palin is the one pallin' around with the terrorists.
