Lipstick on a Pugilist

Everything was absolutely ideal on the day I bombed the Pentagon. The sky was blue. The birds were signing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.--William Ayers, Fugitive Days (2001).

The McCain campaign must hit Obama hard with the truths about his deficient experience, damning associations (William Ayers, Tony Rezko, Jeremiah Wright, etc.), and policies (pro-abortion to the highest degree, etc.). Sarah Palin recently brought up his close associations with William Ayers, which The Wall Street Journal recently exposed as significant, not minor. "The lipstick is on and the gloves are off," she said. I love it.

Ayers was part of the Weather Underground, a violent Marxist group in the 1960s. He brags of bombing US buildings. You know someone by the company they keep (Psalm 1). Ayers has never renounced his actions or philosophies. The New York Times and other sources say that Ayers carried out his attacks on America when Obama was just a boy. This is red herring. The issue is not whether Obama was a part of Ayers actions (he could not have been), but whether Obama has sound judgment and prudence about his political cobelligerents. He does not. And it matters.

For more on Obama and Ayers, read David Fredosso, The Case Against Barack Obama, pages 121-127.
