The other day I wrote a piece on Senator Obama’s association with Bill Ayers. In it I wondered what Sen. Obama would say if Senator McCain was associated with a group that included the president of the John Birch Society. In the course of reading some blogs I found links to others who asked the same question.
Jennifer Rubin in Commentary talked about a hypothetical association with the John Birch Society. Charles Krauthammer in The Washington Post wrote about how Senator Obama associated with various radicals in order to help him move up the political ladder. An editorial in The Manchester (NH) Union Leader asked what if John McCain had spent time with Timothy McVeigh.
I highly doubt any of these writers have ever read my blog. What I like about the similarities is that my political views and the way I present them are shared by others who are much more talented writers. Maybe with a few thousand more posts someone will discover me and actual pay me to write.
On a related topic, I found this post by Jack Cashill in which he goes into great detail regarding Senator Obama’s first book, Dreams of My Father. His premise is the book is very similar to Bill Ayers memoirs, Fugitive Days, and wonders if Mr. Ayers ghost written Senator Obama’s book. In addition, in 1997 Mr. Ayers wrote another book and in it he talks about the people in his Chicago neighborhood, including Barack Obama. If they were only acquaintances why would Mr. Ayers mention him in his book?
