Obama hearts Ayers...

....and at least someone is talking about it:

Go visit The American Issue Project to get more info on the Weather Underground and Ayer's history of radical tactics and extreme violence.

Meanwhile, in one of the greatest acts of moral equivalency seen since Jimmy Carter last visited the Mideast, Obama is comparing the American army preserving a struggling new democracy in Iraq to the Russian army raping a struggling new democracy in Eastern Europe. Via Gateway Pundit:

Democrat Barack Obama scolded Russia again on Wednesday for invading another country’s sovereign territory while adding a new twist: the United States, he said, should set a better example on that front, too.

The Illinois senator’s opposition to the Iraq war, which his comment clearly referenced, is well known. But this was the first time the Democratic presidential candidate has made a comparison between the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Russia’s recent military activity in Georgia.

We’ve got to send a clear message to Russia and unify our allies,” Obama told a crowd of supporters in Virginia. “They can’t charge into other countries. Of course it helps if we are leading by example on that point.”

Of course! Like all of the world's problems, it's America's fault the Russians tore their newly liberated neighbors a new *sshole!

Just the kind of thinking you'd expect from a Friend of Bill(Ayers).

The fact, incidentally, that the Democrats nominated this man as their standard-bearer says a lot more about the Democrats' standards than it does about the man. We now know Obama, hence his plummeting poll numbers. But if he is simply emblematic of the Democratic party as a whole, well, then, it is a party that has revealed its soul.

And, like all self-loathers, it is an ugly one.
