The Real Bill Ayers

Bill Ayers, as we know, wasn't and isn't a confidant of P-e Obama. He is barely acquainted with him, unlike the amazing stories fabricated by McCain and his lady-friend, Palin. The NY Times has an op-ed piece by Ayers in which he discusses his becoming an issue in the recent campaign:

Hey Ralph,

I couldn't find an email address for you so I needed to leave this invitation for you in a comment. We have an new Appalachian blogger board called Straight Outta Appalachia and we'd love to have you aboard. We talk about just about everything and sometimes it gets a little raw, but for the most part it's been fun.

The right was just grasping at old straws. They have very little left to do right now.

Google up his NPR Fresh Air conversation about two weeks ago.
Ayers phrase "dishonest narrative" tells the story.
And what Fred Davis was up to is maybe even more despicable.

GMM: You simply got to get a copy of Rash's Serena in your hands. Don't wait. See my blog. Me and the NY times can't be wrong on this one.

Ayers, being the jewel that he is, is the one to believe? mom2

All this mess was made up in the heat of a campaign. McCain and Palin knew the truth, but it sounded good to their supporters, so they used it, as did Hillary Clinton. Ayers did what he did 40 years ago in protest of the Vietnam war. It means little today. He and his cronies made sure that they didn't harm anyone, which is a bit different from a "terrorist." A so-called domestic terrorist is someone like Timothy McVeigh or Eric Rudolph, who intentionally kill and maime people. Of course, I'm sure that Rudolph is a hero of yours, since he attacked and killed people at abortion clinics.

You are wrong again GMM. About both issues here. I would never condone killing abortionist, even though I think their killing is terrible. As for Ayers, you sure are willing to overlook a lot. It would probably be interesting to see what views he espouses in his classroom still to this day. Go back to sleep. You will awaken some day. Terrified, but too late. mom2

Mom2, I don't overlook anything worse than you overlook when it comes to the Bush Administration. Ayers didn't kill anyone needlessly or have people tortured. We all know what Bush, Cheney and Rove did. They are frantically trying to put a fresh spin on their very evil doings.

Mom2:

I think you have a problem with perspective.
My friend Gus Niebuhr has a new book out Beyond Tolerance. And Eric Foner has a collection on Lincoln.
Like me, maybe you don't know everything you think you know.
Read them over Christmas and maybe you can be part of an elevated discussion the New Year.

I'm not sure that's possible FOX, but there is always hope. By the way, I am going to get a copy of Serena shortly move it to the top of my reading list.
