How Does A Political Science Major Not Know About The Weather Underground?

Barack H. Obama, Poli Sci Major (Columbia University, 1983) has some explaining to do, and this little exchange doesn't begin to suffice:

Learning about Ayers

The Obama campaign raised some eyebrows the other day by suggesting that Obama didn't know who Bill Ayers was, and David Axelrod clarified a bit today, Carrie Budoff Brown reports. He said Obama didn't know about Ayers' background when he attended a meet-and-greet at his house in advance of his first state Senate race, but he learned afterward.

"It was sometime after their first meeting that he became aware of it. I don’t know the exact moment," Axelrod said. "The fact is a lot of people who didn’t live through that era, particularly who didn’t live through that era in Chicago. When he came to Chicago, Ayers was advising Mayor Daley on school reform issues. That was his profile, was that he was an expert on education issues."

"No one is suggesting he never knew," Axelrod said.

But, Dear Axelrod, I'm suggesting --nay, stating a damned fact-- that Obama's undergrad Poli Sci classes (at freakin' Columbia University, fer cryin' out loud) surely didn't skip the 1960's.

If people want to vote for a Socialist, that's fine. As long as the candidate runs as a Socialist.

My problem with Obama, Ayers, and their ilk is that they're using the Democratic Party as a front.

You see, there were two types of us "hippies" back in the day: those of us who embraced the "peace, love & good will toward all" types; and those who blew up buildings and killed people.

There was --and still is-- a huge damned difference, y'all.

Number of days since Donna Brazile promised to leave the party if superdelegates decided the Dem nominee:

Donna has known for a long time now that superdelegates would be necessary for any Dem candidate to win the nomination this year. Ask Donna when she intends to keep her promise.
Don't hold your breath awaiting a reply.

Here's Donna now...
