Gateway Pundit linked to this story about Sunstein’s new book:
In his recently released book, “On Rumors,” Sunstein specifically cited as a primary example of “absurd” and “hateful” remarks, reports by “right-wing websites” alleging an association between President Obama and Weatherman terrorist Bill Ayers.
As the blog that discovered the extent of the financial connections between Ayers and Obama, and the fact that their organizations shared office space, I’m going to assume he’s at least partially talking about us (though I suspect he’s thinking primarily of NRO).
For those that don’t recall, last year VS found that:
All told, boards on which Barack Obama sat delivered $1,968,718 to Bill Ayers’ Small Schools Workshop. These same boards granted another $761,100 to John Ayers’ [Bill's brother] Leadership for Quality Education group (and the SSC), which as I’ve noted already funded the Small Schools umbrella group he ran with Bill Ayers.
I don’t know where Sunstein gets off calling this and “absurd” connection. Nearly three million dollars funneled to Ayers’ pet project by boards on which Obama sat and had a voice. That’s a lot of scratch.
Ayers’ own memoir describes Obama as a “family friend.” I guess Ayers didn’t get the message that pointing out such connections is “absurd” and “hateful.”
