This morning members of the media spotted one very famous man making his way to a polling place in Chicago.
But Bill the Terrorist remained silent, probably because he was plotting something…
Washington Wire, waiting for Barack Obama to arrive at the Beluah Shoesmith Elementary School on Chicago’s South Side to cast his vote, saw Bill Ayers with his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, getting in line.
Newsweek’s Richard Wolffe first noticed Ayers. Washington Wire confirmed his identity, yelling out, “Mr. Ayers, who did you vote for?” Ayers turned around but did not answer. An official from the Chicago election board sternly admonished against yelling at the polling station.
How dare the democratic process pal around with an unrepentant terrorist?

In an article entitled "Level of White Support for Obama a Surprise", the New York Times' John Harwood expressed shock yesterday that Barack Obama was receiving some support from white voters. Apparently, their recent polling indicates that certain white Americans have hinted that they may consider voting for Obama, even though he is an admitted African-American.
Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Times went even further in an article printed this morning claiming that some white voters even like the fact that Obama is a member of a racial minority, and have been inspired to vote for him because of it!
These mainstream newspapers shouldn't be so surprised. After all, we've known for weeks that literally dozens of white people all across the country have announced that they will vote for Obama, including…
* Joe Biden
* Howard Dean
* Rosie O'Donnell
* Colin Powell
* Bill Ayers
* Obama's grandmother
* Karl Marx
The rest of the newspaper's investigations were much less surprising. In keeping with the status quo, their polls found that absolutely no senior citizens, veterans, or real Americans planned to vote for Obama.

Some things just go without saying. I don't have to tell you which things, because you obviously know what they are, right? John McCain spokesman Michael Goldfarb knows what I'm talking about.
Here's an exchange he just had with CNN's Rick Sanchez…
GOLDFARB: Look. You are missing the point again, Rick. The point is that Barack Obama has a long track record of being around anti-Semitic and anti-Israel and anti-American rhetoric.
SANCHEZ: Can you name one other person besides Khalidi who he hangs around that is anti-Semitic?
GOLDFARB: Yes, he pals around with William Ayers.
SANCHEZ: No, no, the question I asked you is that can you name one other person who he hangs around with who is anti-Semitic? Because that is what you said.
GOLDFARB: Look, we know there are people who Barack Obama has been in hot water–
SANCHEZ: Michael, I asked you the name one person. One.
GOLDFARB: Rick –
SANCHEZ: You said he hangs around with people who are anti-Semitic. Okay. Khalidi and name other people that we all know about?
GOLDFARB: And Rick, we both know who number two is.
SANCHEZ: Who? Would you tell us?
GOLDFARB: No, Rick, I think we all know who we are talking about here.
SANCHEZ: Somebody who is anti-Semitic that he hangs around with.
GOLDFARB: I think we all know who we are talking about.
SANCHEZ: Say it.
GOLDFARB: I think we all know who we're talking about, Rick.
Man, Rick Sanchez needs to get a clue. As if he doesn't know. I know it. You know it. We all know it.
It's Mel Gibson, right?

Surely you've heard, there's a hot new Obama terrorist pal in town. (William Ayers? So passe. Sorry, guy. Even John McCain called you washed up.)
Get with it! All the cool zealots are moving on to Barack Obama's second wild-eyed buddy, this crazy honcho of the Palestine Liberation Organization. He and Barack Obama palled around real hard back in the day, thinking up ways to destroy Israel and k-i-s-s-i-n-g.
It's true! Even Sarah Palin says so…
"It seems that there is yet another radical professor from the neighborhood who spent a lot of time with Barack Obama going back several years," Palin said at an event in Bowling Green, Ohio. "This is important because his associate, Rashid Khalidi… in addition to being a political ally of Barack Obama, he's a former spokesperson for the Palestinian Liberation Organization." …
Khalidi is a leading scholar of Middle Eastern studies at [elitist Ivy League university!!1!] Columbia, and he was a contemporary of Obama's while on the faculty of the University of Chicago. Khalidi has been a harsh critic of U.S. foreign policy toward Israel and has accused the country of "occupying" Palestinian territories. But he has denied acting as a PLO spokesman during a seven-year period in the 1970s and 1980s.
Khalidi said Wednesday, "I am not speaking to the media at this time, and certainly not until this idiot wind passes."
"Idiot wind," eh, "Professor" Khalidi? Sounds mighty un-American to these ears. And these ears don't run.
Now, if only there were some kind of video evidence proving that Khalidi and Obama were once in a room together, preferably a room where a third party said something controversial…
In April, the Los Angeles Times published an article about a going-away dinner for Khalidi that Obama attended in Chicago, Illinois, in 2003. Khalidi was leaving to become a professor at Columbia.
The paper reported that a young Palestinian-American woman recited a poem at the farewell party that accused the Israeli government of terrorism for its treatment of Palestinians and was highly critical of U.S. support of Israel.
The McCain campaign accused the Los Angeles paper of "intentionally suppressing" a videotape it obtained from that dinner and demanded that it release the footage. The Times said it won't release the footage because a reporter promised a source that the video would not be made public.
Asked why the McCain campaign was bringing the matter up six months after the article appeared, an aide replied, "Because we are one week away from potentially electing Barack Obama."
Exactly. Thank you, anonymous all-American McCain aide.
Now that's a real patriot's reasoning.

Jon Swift — a self-described "reasonable conservative" blogger — did us, the blogosphere and all of mankind a great service by collecting all of the far-right wing unreasonable conservative attack blogs' greatest/lowest moments from this seemingly infinite election cycle and posting them all in one handy-dandy place for our gawking pleasure…
Hampered by quaint, old-fashioned rules of journalism that require citing evidence and reputable sources, the mainstream media has failed to report a number of important stories about Obama and the conservative blogosphere has had to step up and do the media's job for them.
As a public service I have collected some of the most important of these stories in one place.
Pulitzer Prize judges, take note!
Swift's collection includes such classics as…
* Barack Obama's dark and mysterious years as a domestic terrorist at Columbia University
* William Ayers' ghost-writing of "Dreams of My Father"
* The Caribbean exile of Barack Obama's secret girlfriend
* Barack Obama's forged birth certificate
* Barack Obama's childhood homosexual affair with a pedophile
And many, many more. Lots of links, lots of explanation.
