What a difference a day makes. Today it has been noted that McCain/Palin has dropped the Ayers reference from their stump speeches. Many ponder whether it was the fact that negative advertising doesn't win, especially when it is all about the economy stupid but upon further review it just may be because their hands have been caught in the 'associations' cookie jar.
Today John McCain's campaign released a list of 100 former ambassadors endorsing the GOP presidential nominee and believe it or not the second name on the list was Leonore Annenberg, who is currently the president and chairman of the Annenberg Foundation which is the name of the Chicago education board where McCain is accusing Barack Obama of having an 'association' with William Ayers. How's that for 'right back at you.'
UPDATE: It is amazing that the republicans want to stoop so low as to try and tie Obama to Ayers a former member of the Weather Underground (when Obama was only 8) and who is now a college professor and activist in Chicago and yet refuse to realize that Palin is MARRIED to a man who is a card-carrying member of the Alaska Independence Party (AIP) for many years and who neither Palin nor Todd has distanced themselves from. Palin even went so far as to videotape welcoming comments to their 2008 convention as a sitting Governor.
The AIP is Anti-America and continues to spew Anti-Americanism and has damned the United States continuously yet nothing is said by the GOP about First Dude of Alaska Todd Palin nor his VP nominee wife - so the question has to be America who has the closest terrorist association.
