Not The ______ I Knew

VDH - Obama's problematic friends are jettisoned on the basis of political expediency, not principle.

Ross Douthat says the Ayers issue is dead... played out....over. I think he's right. I think the issue of Obama's association with Ayers is a more serious one than he does, but I think he's right that it's played out.

At least it's played out until President Obama has to go on TV in response to some future bombing by a terrorist here in the U.S. and try to summon some credible moral outrage.

And wouldn't it be interesting if it were eventually proven that Ayers ghostwrote "Dreams From My Father"?
