Sigh. As I’ve said before, the IQ of these conservatives is dropping like an anchor.
Tim Russo at BloggerInterrupted interviewed some of the ignorant yahoos at a Bible Spice rally in Strongsville, OH and the ignorance — added on top of the proud bluster, is incredible:
A sample of the comments:
“I think he (Obama) is a one-man terror cell.”
“He’s got the bloodlines…look at the name.”
“There have been more personal interviews with Sarah Palin than Barack Obama.”
And then some tool comes up to one of the unhinged yahoos who can’t stay away from the camera and instructs her – “Don’t answer any questions until he (Tim) submits them to you in writing.”
Straight from the Straight Talking Maverick Machine into my mailbox. The smell of flopsweat and desperation requires a Glade Plug-in as they feed upon this intellectual mob’s desire with the release of its latest ad this AM,”Ayers“.
ANNCR: Barack Obama and domestic terrorist Bill Ayers. Friends. They’ve worked together for years.
But Obama tries to hide it. Why?
Obama launched his political career in Ayers’ living room.
Ayers and Obama ran a radical “education” foundation, together.
They wrote the foundation’s by-laws, together.
Obama was the foundation’s first chairman.
Reports say they, “distributed more than $100 million to ideological allies with no discernible improvement in education.”
When their relationship became an issue, Obama just responded, “This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood.”
We know Bill Ayers ran the “violent left wing activist group” called Weather Underground.
We know Ayers’ wife was on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list.
We know they bombed the Capitol. The Pentagon. A judge’s home.
We know Ayers said, “I don’t regret setting bombs. …. I feel we didn’t do enough.”
But Obama’s friendship with terrorist Ayers isn’t the issue.
The issue is Barack Obama’s judgment and candor.
When Obama just says, “This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood.”
Americans say, “Where’s the truth, Barack?”
Barack Obama. Too risky for America.
JOHN MCCAIN: I’m John McCain and I approve this message.
If this is such a critical issue in the campaign at this juncture — and he approves of the message, then why did John McCain not take the opportunity to stand onstage with the “terrorist” during this week’s town hall on national television and personally ask Obama about his past “associations?’ No cojones, McSame? Don’t want your past associations on the table? Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow discuss some of those McGuilt by Association ties. See the video below the fold. Via Raw Story:
Former Clinton aide Paul Begala pointed out on Sunday that McCain sat on the board of the U.S. Council for World Freedom, part of the World Anti-Communist League, having joined in 1982 after the Anti-Defamation League called it a “gathering place for racists and anti-semites with links to Nazi collaborators and right-wing death squads.” The Council for World Freedom was funded by right-wing tycoon Sun Myung Moon, and among its ranks were founding CIA member and Iran-Contra figure John K. Singlaub. While McCain resigned from the organization due to a stated “lack of time,” he attended one of its events as late as 1986, and the organization continued to use his name on its letterhead around the same time.
Governor Palin’s involvement with the pro-secession Alaskan Independence Party, to which husband Todd belonged, was also criticized. The Governor herself, in a March video message, told the organization to “keep up the good work.” Founder Joe Vogler, in 1993, intended to give a speech denouncing “American tyranny” at the United Nations with the sponsorship of Iran.
“If Iran ties and secession do not qualify as terrorist associations,” Olbermann said, the WACL also armed and sent supplies, including boots, to rebels in Afghanistan who would become the Mujahadeen, later the Taliban, and Osama bin Laden, “whom McCain once promised to chase to the gates of Hell.”
