Ayers: Obama Election 'A Strike Against White Supremacy'

It's not quite clear what Barack Obama's terrorist pal has against Robert Byrd, but one thing is certain: The New York Times can't get enough of this crackpot.

First there was his impeccably timed September 11, 2001 column where he said he didn't regret being a terrorist. Then the Times so graciously gave him op-ed space again this past December where he played the victim for being called a terrorist.

Now he'll be getting the full NY Times Magazine treatment this Sunday.

Who said crime doesn't pay?
Sarah Palin once accused Barack Obama of “palling around with terrorists,” a catchphrase intended to highlight Obama’s connection to former Weather Underground member Bill Ayers.

Now that the campaign rhetoric has subsided, Ayers has an idea for a new show starring his Alaskan nemesis.

“I did send her a note after the election,” he says of Palin in the upcoming issue of the New York Times magazine. “I suggested that we have a talk show together called ‘Pallin’ Around With Sarah and Bill.’ I haven’t heard back.”

Ayers assiduously avoided interviews and press attention during the presidential race, but he insists the Obama campaign never told him to keep quiet.

“They apparently didn’t want to call me, and I certainly wouldn’t have initiated it,” he says.

According to Ayers, Obama’s election was “a strike against white supremacy.” But, he says, his victory doesn’t change the fact that “40 percent of black kids under 5 live in poverty.”
I guess that trillion-dollar war on poverty didn't quite work out.
