The Sarah Palin One-Two Punch on Obama-Ayers

Well, I think we can safely say Sarah has been freed. Freed to read the New York Times and comment on revelations of a relationship between Barack Obama and an unrepentant domestic terrorist, which the paper has finally seen fit to report upon:

Palin told a group of donors at a private airport, “Our opponent … is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect, imperfect enough, that he’s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country.” She also said, “This is not a man who sees America as you see America and as I see America.”

He’s not kidding. In a poetic turn of events, the New York Times’ belated reporting on the Obama-Ayers connection, told in a “nothing-to-see-here” tone, has given Palin a hook to tweak her critics in the media and go after Obama for his associations. She’s doing it again in remarks at a Colorado rally today:

There’s been a lot of interest in what I read lately. Well, I was reading my copy of today’s New York Times and I was really interested to read about Barack’s friends from Chicago. 

Turns out, one of his earliest supporters is a man who, according to The New York Times was a domestic terrorist and part of a group that, quote, ‘launched a campaign of bombings that would target the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol.’

These are the same guys who think patriotism is paying higher taxes. This is not a man who sees America as you and I do – as the greatest force for good in the world. This is someone who sees America as imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists who targeted their own country. This, ladies and gentlemen, has nothing to do with the kind of change anyone can believe in – not my kids and not your kids. The only man who can take on Washington is John McCain.
