I admit, I don’t really watch Fox News, but lately, when I’ve flipped past it and let it linger on the channel for more then a few seconds, or someone at work is watching it, I can be sure to hear two words: “Bill Ayers”.
My question is: Is this some feeble attempt to scare me into voting for McCain? Because it seems like they are pounding this like there’s no tomorrow, and every time it seems to be some lame attempt to make Obama look like his best buddy or show Bill Ayers crazy ideology.
Except it’s still unimpressive because it still doesn’t change the fact that Ayers days in the weathermen were 30+ years ago and he’s since gotten a day job as a college professor, which is where he met obama. It doesn’t change the fact Obama has denounced the weather underground bombings. If fox news had news that Ayers was still making bombs in his basement, I’d probably care, but right now my feelings are somewhere between “Don’t care” and “Don’t give a flying fuck”, with a healthy slice of “Don’t they have anything else to report on? Is it really that slow a news day that they have nothing more current then the weather underground to report on?”
However, I keep wondering if this is really the worst they can throw at obama, because it’s pretty lame. And no, I’m not going to suddenly vote for McCain because you keep saying “Bill Ayers”.
I don’t know if that’s really a pit, but I couldn’t think of anywhere else to put it.
