Why, Obama?

Why on earth didn't you point out that Leonore Annenberg, the second name on the McCain campaign's list of 100 former ambassadors who endorse McCain, is also the President and Chairman of the Annenberg Foundation, the organization for which both Obama and Ayers, among other politicians both Republican and Democrat, served on a board together.

"It was never a concern by any of us in the Chicago school reform movement that he had led a fugitive life years earlier ... It's ridiculous," Republican Rep. Diana Nelson said. "There is no reason at all to smear Barack Obama with this association. It's nonsensical, and it just makes me crazy. It's so silly."
So, by his own admission, McCain's second biggest supporter also "pals around with terrorists"? Details at the Huffington Post.

And why, why, WHY ON EARTH didn't Obama bring up the Palin's association to the Alaska Independence Party? How can Palin and McCain repeatedly question Obama's patriotism when Todd Palin was a member of the AIP for years, and Sarah Palin has attended AIP conventions and sent them a video speech this year in which she told them to keep up the good work? Why, Obama, why, didn't you bring that up? The facts speak for themselves, whereas McCain can only bluster that you have a "long standing association with Ayers", but can't provide anything to back that assertion up.
