Khalidi has some very interesting views on Israel, and if the L.A. Times releases
the video of his farewell dinner attended by Obama AND Bill Ayers (I guess it was the 2nd
time Obama had met with Ayers in his lifetime Yeah sure ) we all could settle this issue.
I don't think anyone denies that he has "interesting" views on Israel.
But weren't Obama and Khalidi both professors (or lecturers) at the University of Chicago at the time of this dinner?
Why does it even matter? The GOP is painting a dangerous picture here that you can't have respectful associations with people who's views you don't completely agree with.
Moreover, do you think they'd be using Khalidi in their campaign the way they are if he were a white man? I don't. I think he's their perfect "scary Muslim."
This is all just diversionary fear mongering on the part of McCain/Palin. Again.
Why don't they spend a little more time talking about themselves and their plans.
Today Palin alluded to the idea that the mainstream media calling these attacks "negative campaigning" is threatening her first amendment rights.
