The company you keep matters...

I admit it: I judge people by their associates.

In terms of the immigration hard-liners, I have explained how their associations render their position unsupportable.

Well, it seems Barack Obama got approved by one of the Weather Underground in his initial run for the Illinois state senate.

William Ayers made a very damning comment in the New York Times in my book:
''I don't regret setting bombs,'' Bill Ayers said. ''I feel we didn't do enough.''
The date of that article was September 11, 2001. The day terrorists flew airplanes into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon and only failed to hit the White House or Capitol due to the heroism of the passengers.

Obama needs to explain this.

Ayers and Dohrn are a sideshow. Much more telling is this analysis of Obama's political aculturation:

The only word I have for it is chilling, especially since if McCain tries to use it against him, he'll be tarred as a racist bigot.

Sigh! Every time I try to post a link for you lately, it manages to get cut off. Tack on an html after that last dot.
