But considering Obama's defense of his long, well-documented association with remorseless terrorist William Ayers -- even friendship, according to Chicago Mayor Richard Daley -- I'm having second thoughts. Obama keeps saying, "I was only 8 or 9 when Ayers did those bombings and said all that 'Kill your parents' stuff!" Well, nobody who's alive today is old enough to have fought for the Confederacy. No American is old enough to have owned slaves. So what's the big deal about flying the ol' Stars and Bars? It doesn't mean you're sympathetic to those ideas. There can be no such thing as a legacy, because then that standard could apply to Obama too.
Makes you wonder about all that "Bush is Hitler" stuff, though. Bush was born a year after Hitler died. So by the Obama Standard, there's no logic to the comparison. Ha ha, I said "logic." How silly.Posted by Jim Treacher at October 6, 2008 06:01 AM
