New Ad: Ayers Succeeded Where Bin Laden Failed. What Kind of Friends Do You Have There, Barack?

Simple, direct, and to the point.

Ben Smith at the Politico really disgraces himself by trying to start the meme that the ad tries to smear Obama as a Muslim and Muslims as de facto terrorists.

Uh, Ben? Bill Ayers—Barack's buddy of more than two decades—is not a Muslim.

Nice try there, Bucket, but you can't carry the water on this one.

Rest assured that if John McCain knew Timothy McVeigh, the Dems would have no problem describing them as McBirds of a McFeather.

So...McSame must be running scared now, huh?

Yep, absolutely terrified. I know that if I were McCain and all those polls started to turn in my favor day after day and week after week I'd be hiding under my bed.

It's not a good time to be a leftie, is it? Has the panic started to set in? Have you started writing down excuses for when Obama loses so that you can get out in front of it and explain away how, in a year everything was going in Dems' favor, they still couldn't pull it out?

McCain will need more of this to win, and he should be ruthless. Obama will be, yes he will.

Take a look at McCain's new web ad - it's hilarious (or infuriating, if you're an Obamabot.) Manages to make not only Obama, but Pelosi, Kaine and The One's fervent disciples all look ridiculous:

The Ayers and Rezko ads are excellent, but this one will really get under their skin. Laughing at the Messiah? How dare we?

I like all three ads. I'm just really glad that the Ayres thing isn't just going away. That man should be behind bars. He's not "respectable" he's horrible. Terrorizing a country like the United States... where would Ayres, the spoiled brat like to live? I'd really hate to see that place.

I wish that they could make a bigger deal out of this:

I mean, it was in the WSJ, and it's pretty cynical and ugly. Call off the Federal oversite of the mob ties to the Unions? And he considers himself to be pro Union? So I guess with Obama in the oval office, you can expece organized crime to regain a lot of the ground that it lost under Regan?
I hope not.

When does this hit prime time TV? Not everyone has YouTube. Everyone watches the idiot box.

"When does this hit prime time TV?"

When you can watch it on the big screen in the lodge of the Satan Ski Resort....

Have our politics dropped so low that a man who sought out the mentorship of terrorists and communists can actually be nominated as a presidential candidate? How anyone can be a dhimmierat is beyond me. As for Politico they have abandoned any pretense of being a serious blog a long time ago.
