Line o' the Day: Molotov Cocktail

Don Surber (via Larwyn):

...what not to say in defense of Democrat Barack Obama (even if AP buried it in the 14th paragraph)... I'll admit, I missed its significance too the first time I posted on it.

AP's Douglass Daniel had an analyst in which he implied Republican Sarah Palin is a racist for connecting Obama to unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers... Daniel defended Obama better than Obama's own people.

The original headline was: "Analysis: Palin's words carry racial tinge."

That was changed to: "Analysis: Palin's words may backfire on McCain." ...Please note paragraph 14:

"It's a giant changing of the subject," said Jenny Backus, a Democratic strategist. "The problem is the messenger. If you want to start throwing fire bombs, you don't send out the fluffy bunny to do it. I think people don't take Sarah Palin seriously."

Yes, if you want fire-bombing done right, Obama is the expert on who to call.

Yes, we can!
