The far reaches of outer Reichwingnuttia are in full warp gazillion shrilling mode with their big Obama defeating October Surprise:
John McCain's presidential campaign Tuesday accused the Los Angeles Times of "intentionally suppressing" a videotape it obtained of a 2003 banquet where then-state Sen. Barack Obama spoke of his friendship with Rashid Khalidi, a leading Palestinian scholar and activist.Of course, the fact that Khalidi is a scholar who is now a professor at Columbia University means nothing to the Reichwingnuts. For fuck's sake already, his name is Rashid Khalidi and he is Palestinian.
Therefore he is a terrorist.
Fun IOKIYAR fact: During the 1990s, while he served as chairman of the International Republican Institute (IRI), McWorse distributed several grants to the Palestinian research center co-founded by Khalidi, including one worth half a million dollars.
Obviously, those of us on the left can't understand how THAT'S different.
