Douglass K Daniel, AP writer, criticized Sarah Palin’s hit on Obama’s past association with radical activist, Bill Ayers. Douglass K Daniel accused Palin’s statement of being “unsubstantiated and carried a racially-tinged subtext that John McCain himself may come to regret.”
Douglass K Daniel is trying to counter attack with an old, far fetched theory. Douglass Daniel hints that McCain’s adopted daughter, Bridget McCain, may be dragged into the turmoil because she is dark skinned, having originated from Bangladesh. How is a reference to Bill Ayers, a white man, going to be “racially-tinged”? Douglass Daniel, in desperation, brings up the race card.
Palin points out that the focus is on the radical terrorist, not the white/black race. Palin defends herself against the AP writer Douglass Daniel, by saying –
“The Associated Press is wrong. The comments are about an association that has been known but hasn’t been talked about and I think its fair to talk about where Barack Obama kicked off his political career, in the guy’s living room. And he of course, having been associated with that group, a known domestic terrorist group, it’s important for Americans to know. Its really important for Americans to start knowing who the real Barack Obama is.”
