Did William Ayers babysit Obama's kids?

I don't know. But it's at least as solid a lead as, just to pick an example at random, "Sarah Palin is Trig's grandma." Which the NYT and CNN and everybody else ran with. It's at least as solid a lead as, just to pick another example at random, "Joe the Plumber isn't even registered to vote." Neither one was true. But then, that's not really the point of publishing these rumors, is it?

You opened this gate, gatekeepers. Don't blame us for walking through it.
