AP Claims Palin "Smearing" Obama with Ties to Ayers
Even more hilariously, they claim there's something vaguely racist
"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," Palin told a group of donors in Englewood, Colo. A deliberate attempt to smear Obama, McCain's ticket-mate echoed the line at three separate events Saturday.
Gosh, the AP reports, there's no evidence they were pals. Just because they served on some board together, just because Obama launched his political career at their home, why would anybody think they are pals. As for the racial angle:
Palin's words avoid repulsing voters with overt racism. But is there another subtext for creating the false image of a black presidential nominee "palling around" with terrorists while assuring a predominantly white audience that he doesn't see their America?
Yeah, I don't get it either. Apparently you're not allowed to criticize a black presidential nominee.
