It’s a topsy-turvy world when CNN has a segment not only with Stanley Kurtz participating but where they actually do some good reporting on a…gasp….Democrat:

They shoot down as a lie the Obama statement that he only “briefly” served on a board with Ayers, they talk about the fact that most of the grants that came from that board went to radical causes, and then Drew Griffin tells the anchor, Anderson Cooper, how he had spoken to two people who attended the political coming out party for Obama held in the livingroom of Ayers and they both said Obama lied about the party being arranged by Alice Palmer instead of Ayers.

Ayers and Obama planned the whole party.

Only thing missing was the fact that the Annenberg Challenge group failed to accomplish anything to better our schools. Some legacy for Obama.

Of course in the end Cooper had to throw a hand out to Obama with a “But – but – but he denounced it, right?” question. No s&*t sherlock. Obama has been caught associating, for years, with a KNOWN terrorist…what else is he going to say? He said the same thing when caught going to a racist church for 20 years.

At least there is hope. When CNN doesn’t believe the lies coming from Obama then maybe, just maybe, McCain will come out swinging tonight with this stuff.

UPDATE

Mark Levin on those who have supported Obama:

As someone who has written critically of John McCain on a host of issues, including the Keating Five, none of it compares to the life that Barack Obama has led and his belief system. Obama is not merely associated with domestic terrorists, Palestinian radicals, Marxists, and black liberation ideologues — he was their favorite candidate. They groomed him. They befriended him. He befriended them. He socialized with them. In other words, these people saw Obama as representing their views and aspirations and he saw them the same way. I am not among those who raise Obama’s associations but add “of course, it doesn’t mean Obama shares their views.” Oh really? These miscreants include Obama’s former pastor, political mentors and allies, and friends. Obama attempts to downplay and distance himself from his own circle of allies now that he is running for president. But he is one of them. Obama is getting a pass that no other candidate in my memory has ever received.

If John McCain had belonged to a church for 20 years and that church advocated white supremacy and the pastor of the church spewed racist propaganda wrapped in Biblical verses — much of which was caught on video-tape — what would we say? If McCain’s good friends included people involved in blowing up abortion clinics instead of the Capitol Building, the Pentagon, and police stations, what would we say? If McCain was socially close to a professor with ties to neo-Nazi groups in Berlin, as opposed to a professor who had ties to the PLO, what would we say? If McCain spent his formative years schooled in fascism as opposed to Marxism, what would we say?

Every time Obama’s life experiences and character are raised, the response is a diversionary tactic. Today, we’re supposed to be impressed with the moral equivalency argument (Ayers = Keating Five), or Obama’s associations and friendships aren’t what they appear to be, or Obama really isn’t like all those people he drew around him, or those raising these issues are guilty of McCarthyism. There are 30 days left in this election. It’s high time the Obama fan-dance ended.
