Palin hits Obama for ‘terrorist’ connection

Palin hits Oba­ma for ‘ter­ror­ist’ con­nec­tion — CNN​.com

Alas­ka Gov. Sarah Palin on Sat­ur­day slammed Sen. Barack Oba­ma’s polit­i­cal rela­tion­ship with a for­mer anti-war rad­i­cal, accus­ing him of asso­ci­at­ing “with ter­ror­ists who tar­get­ed their own coun­try.”

Pal­in’s attack deliv­ered on the McCain cam­paign’s announce­ment that it would step up attacks on the Demo­c­ra­t­ic pres­i­den­tial can­di­date with just a month left before the Novem­ber gen­er­al elec­tion.

“We see Amer­i­ca as the great­est force for good in this world,” Palin said at a fund-rais­ing event in Col­orado, adding, “Our oppo­nent though, is some­one who sees Amer­i­ca, it seems, as being so imper­fect that he’s palling around with ter­ror­ists who would tar­get their own coun­try.”

Is this real­ly hap­pen­ing now? Was­n’t this more or less set­tled as “not a ter­ri­bly big deal” a while ago?

As Tim said, “What do you do when you can’t win on your own mer­its? Answer (appar­ent­ly): Slan­der your oppo­nent.”
