Scraping The Barrel For Obama-Ayers Influences

There's not much news in the new NY Times article on the Obama-Ayers relationship.  The piece debunks the notion that Ayers got Obama appointed to be the head of Annenberg Challenge board.  It notes that Obama listed an Ayers book (on parenting) as something he'd read.  But the connection is still being used by the McCain campaign (see ad below), and the Obama campaign has, according to the Times, made things worse by down-playing the amount of contact that Obama and Ayers had.

Alexander,

Please do me a favor. Read my most recent blog posts on the question of Ayers and Obama and the board seat on the CAC and please provide me an argument why you think I am wrong. I would be happy to hear from you on or off the record.
