Ack! Rick Moran And I Agree On Bill Ayers Non-Admission
I saw this whole meme breaking of Bill Ayers allegedly admitting to having authored Obama's "Dreams of My Father". Come on, people – have more, or less, coffee and step away from the keyboards. I hate it when I have to agree with my buddy Rick Moran.
Assuming there is any serious analysis suggesting someone other than Obama penned Dreams, looking like a bunch of Kool-Aid inebriated Right Wing nut jobs over an obviously sarcastic comment by Ayers only undermines it. Did you use a pole vault to jump that shark? Heh!
What is perhaps even more bothersome than the wholesale acceptance of this theme by so many on the right is the embrace of the video linked in the AT blog post above by many who appear to have suspended critical analysis in lieu of wishful thinking. Ayers does indeed admit to writing Dreams but in such an obviously sarcastic manner that the question isn’t whether Ayers was serious but how in God’s name so many conservative bloggers failed to see the taunting sarcasm used in his “confession.”
