"We've got to question this guy's associations. Very soon. There's no question that we have to change the subject here."And so today, Sarah Palin, went to the proverbial there
"This is not a man who sees America as you and I do: as the greatest force for good in the world," Palin said at a fundraising event in Colorado, according to a statement released by the McCain-Palin campaign. "This is someone who sees American as imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists who targeted their own country."Barack Obama has met with William Ayers, against whom riot, bomb & conspriacy charges were dropped in 1974, for a school reform project in 1995 & 1996 and at an event hosted for Alice Freeman Palmer. Ayers, now a Professor at UIC, also serves on the board of The Woods Fund and was a board member at the time Obama, consistent with his experience as a Community Organizer, served as the director of that board (1999-2002).
If you are guilty of those things your associates are guilty of, Sarah Palin is a separatist Jew-hater, who thinks Jews and Gays must be converted and G-d know what. One thing we do know for sure is that the McCain-Palin campaign is desperate beyond belief and that Sarah Palin has proven herself, by association, as a danger to the very freedoms American citizens hold dear.
10/05/08 UPDATE: from RawStory, Paul Begala on Meet the Press today reminded the McCain-Palin campaign why they don't want to play the guilt by association game. McCain, it seems, sat on the board of the Council For World Freedom
"The Anti-Defamation League, in 1981 when McCain was on the board, said this about this organization. It was affiliated with the World Anti-Communist League, the parent organization which ADL said had increasingly become a gathering place, a forum, a point of contact for extremists, racist and anti-Semites."Looks like both sides of the McCain-Palin ticket may have some 'splainin' to do when it comes to their associates.
