Gosh. And just last week, prompted to do so by by Katie Couric, she couldn’t even NAME a single newspapers she reads. Amazing what modern technolopgy can do in the field of puppetry, isn’t it? The whole quote:
“Well, I was reading my copy of today’s New York Times and I was interested to read about Barack’s friends from Chicago,” Ms. Palin said at the fund-raiser in Englewood, Colo. “Turns out one of Barack’s earliest supporters is a man who, according to The New York Times, and they are hardly ever wrong, was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol. — NYTImes
I added the italics.
I read that same article, from start to finish. Finally, I say to myself, the so-called MSM gets around to exposing this half-breed Muslim Marxist for the American hating shitheel he is, as the ‘Pub Publicity Machine has insisted from Day One, and as Sarah ImPalin has faithfully repeated.
But I am disappointed: the radical, bomb hurling Ayers I remember from the 60s was long gone by the time Obama met him: he had become a university professor sporting a PhD and an entirely new attitude. As CNN summed it up:
But that article concluded that “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.’ ” CNN
Damn! That’s not even as radical or potentially treasonous and anti-American as the ‘Pub candidate’s hubby, who parades around with the Alaskan Independence Party, seeking to secede from the union. Can you make this work? Elect a vice president whose spouse is actively engaged with a movement dedicated to overthrowing the federal government? Blows my little mind.
But Wingnut Nation isn’t bothered by these minor inconsistencies, hence the new affront on Obama’s associations. Do as they say, not as they do.
