Bill Ayers or Bel Air?

Republicans are right to focus on college professor, and former 1960's radical, Bill Ayers, and not on the nation's disintegrating economy, but rest assured that their dangerous game of bait and switch will backfire just as their vice presidential nominee has.

Whether he's channeling Joe the Plumber or Joe McCarthy, John McCain is simply not the right man for the job, and neither is Sarah Palin.

This last ditch desperate emphasis on Bill Ayers is, in the best sense of the word perverse, and will do nothing to deflect attention away from the wrenching fact that only those in Bel Air will benefit from McCain's tax cuts.
