Obama's literary Ayers and graces
Kate McMillan discovers that "gullible" isn't in the dictionary.
Her readers should check for themselves while Kate is getting some obviously well-needed sleep.
Here's a more amusing read on the subject, by conspiracy theorist Jack Cashill. Supposedly Bill Ayers uses nautical imagery in Fugitive Days because he was once a merchant seaman. How is it, then, that Obama uses it in Dreams from my Father? Aha! The author, without a trace of reflection, notes that he never once used sea-imagery in his own memoir, Sucker Punch, "yet I have spent a good chunk of every summer of my life at the ocean." So if Barack Obama, a Chicago landlubber, uses it, someone else must definitely have ghosted his autobiography. The leaps in logic here would do a premier danseur proud.
Keep it up, folks. I have a lot more popcorn here.
UPDATE: Reader Kevin notes that Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs is less than impressed. But apparently he's lost right-wing street cred.
UPPERDATE: Heh. Kate's got company.
