“Guilty as hell, free as a bird—America is a great country,”


The Bomber as School Reformer
The press—and debate moderators—shouldn’t let Bill Ayers and Barack Obama off the hook.

Back in the early eighties, in an interview with David Horowitz and Peter Collier,
Bill Ayers remembered his reaction upon learning that he would not be prosecuted by the government for his bombing spree as a member of the Weather Underground.

“Guilty as hell, free as a bird—America is a great country,” he exulted.
Ayers is now a university professor, but he must have been exulting all over again after reading Saturday’s front-page story in the New York Times.

The article explored the putative relationship between Ayers and Barack Obama during the time they worked together on the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a five-year philanthropic venture that, starting in 1995, distributed over $160 million in school-improvement grants to the Windy City’s public schools.

They will though, because the press & debate moderators are all Nobama supporters for the most part. I agree when people say journalism is dead, this is the most biased election I've ever seen.

bias or the truth hurts, not everybody is stupid and moronic like some idiots to pin guilt by association, but go ahead and blame the media, the moderators, the internet itself if it makes the stupidity easier to digest.

Maybe the media is trying to link Obama to Kevin Bacon.

Well I am glad John McCain put his foot down and told his followers that there is NOTHING to fear from an Obama presidency.... too bad some are still ignoring him, which is a disgrace to his good name and reputation... people who go on and try to spread fear should be ashamed of themselves!

Should ever be forgot.

I wish people would start listening to Senator McCain! If anyone should know Obama it would be him, he has known him and worked with him for years! I don't know anyone on CD that has personally known and worked with Senator Obama for years!

Sort of reminds me of, "The Emperor's New Clothes."
