It's Rainin' (Weather)men!

By now, you've heard that Barack Obama has connections to a former member of the Weather Underground, William Ayers. Seems that in order to be considered electable in Leftist circles in Chicago, you had to at least meet with Ayers. And, boy, did Obama ever meet with him! Obama has tried to downplay Ayers's past while at the same time playing up the fact that the two of them are friends.

This would have to be grist for Hillary's campaign, right? Not so much. Seems Hill has her own connections to the Weather Underground in the form of her husband, Bill. Former President Clinton granted clemency to two members of the Weather Underground, Linda Evans (no, not the "Dynasty" Linda Evans) and Susan Rosenberg (no, not the "Dynasty" Susan Rosenberg). After news of the clemency got out, Hillary was in full denial mode, saying she didn't know anything about the situation. Yeah, and she really did take sniper fire in Bosnia.

Enough time has passed that most people have forgotten that the Weather Underground was a radical left-wing domestic terrorist group that took responsibility for bombings, murders, and other crimes. Granted, they were active 30 years ago or so, but the fact that both major Democratic Party candidates have connections to them is troubling, not because they had the connections, but because they saw nothing wrong with the connections before they became public knowledge.

Let that sink in for a moment. Two candidates wanting to be President finding little if anything wrong with domestic terrorists. That alone should disqualify either of them from holding a job at the McDonalds drive through window, let alone the job of being leader of the free world. But they pass it off as though it were nothing of importance.

Doesn't that make you feel so good to know that one of these knuckleheads could be President after Election Day?

Apparently we are to believe that if John McCain had had the exact same type of association with someone like Eric Rudolph, the Dems/left/media/bloggers would not be shrieking like banshees about it.

Talking about a willing suspension of disbelief.....
