Looks like the guilt by association game may have blown up in John McCain’s face this time. Sarah “you betcha” Palin and Rudy “9/11” Giuliani deliver what they think is a one-two punch associating Barack Obama to Rashid Khalidi, a Columbia University scholar with a pro-Palestinian reputation and thanks to Rudy, adding the detail that William Ayers also contributed to Khalidi’s research.
Ehhh, problem. McCain’s own International Republican Institute gave Khalidi LOTS of money. Ayers gave Khalidi comparatively less money. But ah, McCain and Ayers fund the same guy. Watch Keith Olbermann connect the dots while pointing out what Keystone Kops the McCain campaign staff must be. (As an aside, notice how Palin mispronounces Khalidi, saying “Khaladi” and then the crowd of yahoos, who don’t know Khalidi from a hole in the head, upon hearing the Arab name exude a collective “ooooooooo”. And to think these folks are allowed to vote.)
Mmmm, who’s paling around with terrorists now, Senator McCain?
