Lame Obama Radio Ad Distorts Relation to Ayers

Weak, and with the same spin we noticed last week, no less.
"Bill Ayers is a professor of education who once served with Obama on a school reform board, a board funded by conservative Republicans tied to McCain," says the ad's narrator. "When Ayers committed crimes in the '60s, Obama was 8 years old. Obama condemned those despicable acts. Ayers has had no role in Obama's campaign, and will have no role in his administration."
Ayers also committed crimes in the 1970s, as did his wife, but why quibble with the facts when we can remind everyone Obama was 8 years old back then?

As for the board being funded by those with ties to McCain, while technically true, it's so pathetically misleading, as we noted here.

Here's the ad McCain should run in response.
