Dittoheads rejoice! You got your coveted Bill Ayers story.

On the front page of the most librulist newspaper of all time; the New York Times, no less.

The wingers convinced themselves long ago that if the public only knew about Ayers and Rezko the presidential race would be over. Americans from coast to coast would realize that not only did Obama once accept a donation from a serial contributor/slum lord in the Chicago area (machine politics!!), he also served on a board with a washed up sixties radical! The problem is that there is nothing there to kick any dust up over. Not even enough to get Richard Mellon Scaife to open up his wallet.

Not that it matters to the conspiracy theorists of the radical right but Obama didn’t win this election because of sinister cabals and secret, back room dealings. He won it by developing a solid ground game, a reliable fund raising apparatus, and a consistent message. Compare this to the McCain campaign who were granted the nomination simply because he was the last man standing. His fund raising was stalled for months even during the period when it was uncertain whether the Dem nominee would be Hillary or Barack. McCain was unsuccessful in building any brand value until the convention and even that was a variation on Obama’s well established theme.

In the short weeks ahead you’re going to see a desperate John McCain. The commercials coming out will be 100% negative and McCain himself will seem impatient and worn out. The online devoted are already talking in circles and wasting their time preaching to the choir about how the responsibility for the sour economy (after saying for months that the economy was terrific) rests solely on, you guessed it, the liberals (as if they didn’t believe that already). The most they can muster are abstract references to “gotcha” journalism, tired innuendo about the media liberal elites and Clinton bashing (in 2008!). Only until after the election will people realize just how fractured and disorganized the Republicans really were. At this point all Obama has to do is keep doing what he’s been doing; staying on message, positive, and issue oriented and he hasn’t done anything so far to indicate that he’s going to stray from that formula.
