So Jonah Goldberg Posts This

this morning

I am not sure what to make of the story that Ayers has now admitted to writing Obama’s autobiography. If it pans out, that is to my mind a very big story. Stay tuned. But I do think I should revise my earlier poo-pooing of Jack Cashill’s effort to prove the Ayers-Obama connection….

I’m thinking he did WHAT, WHEN? Found THIS curious story

…Anne Leary of Back Yard Conservative was passing through Washington, DC’s Reagan National Airport yesterday, and was surprised to come across Bill Ayers at Starbucks: “scruffy, thinning beard, dippy earring, and the wire rims, heading to order.”

…But he didn’t scowl, and didn’t run off as he has been known to do. Instead, unprompted, he blurted out: “I wrote ‘Dreams From My Father… Michelle asked me to.” Then he added “And if you can prove it we can split the royalties.”

Anne responded, “Stop pulling my leg!”

But he repeated insistently, “I wrote it, the wording was similar [to Ayers’ other writing.]”

Anne responded, “I believe you probably heavily edited it.”

Ayers stated firmly, “I wrote it.”

Anne ended the conversation by saying “why would I believe you? You’re a liar.”

(And a murdering scumbag, mind you, but that’s beside the point.)

Watercooler fodder, I would venture. And probably among folks who never bought the wretched tome to begin with. (Of course, the story link has a sidebar with other stories, one of which is “Stand up, stand up for Jesus”. My spidey hackles come up immediately.)

    So you know, Oxford University language specialists said last year (September or October, I think; must lay off the seasonal beer) studies O’s book and Ayers’ writing and concluded Ayers wrote most of it. So said a Brit newspaper. Betcha didn’t see THAT in the NYT.
