Oftentimes I despair over the quality of reasoning one finds on the typical op-ed page. But then I read this, and I am reminded of how bad things could be.
Update. I forgot to mention this somewhat related matter. I actually for the first time in my life got polled for a presidential election. Aside from approve/disapprove questions regarding our current leader, the computer voice asked all sorts of questions about the current candidates. When it got to Obama, it asked at least four questions about William Ayers, including this one: "What roll will William Ayers play in an Obama administration?" Not sure what the sense of that was.
