Reader, Meet Author « The Washington Independent
This, from top conservative blogger (he won an award for his stuff at last year’s CPAC) Ace of Spades, threw me a little. Ace is agog at Garrison Keillor’s praise for Barack Obama as the “first genuine author-president.”
He doesn’t elaborate, but seems to forget more accomplished “author-presidents.” Presidents who wrote their own books, which is quite in doubt with Obama.
In doubt? Who doubts that Obama wrote his two books? Who wrote them, if Obama didn’t?
I’m Growing Convinced that Bill Ayers Did In Fact Ghostwrite Barack “Rara Avis” Obama’s Book: Nautical metaphors may sink Obama. Ayers, a rich kid, delights in yachting and oceanic metaphors. Strangely, so does a memoir by poor single-parent kid Barack Obama. But it’s the curious anecdote of the Hudson River flowing both ways, depending on the tides, appearing in both Bill Ayers’ and “Barack Obama’s” book that is the tell.
This is, of course, crazy, and the site Ace links to is the same one that’s spent months telling readers that it can prove that Obama was born in Kenya as long as they keep spending $10 to send faxes to the Supreme Court.
Ace spent much of yesterday moaning that liberals were being disrespectful to former President George W. Bush, but based on a text analysis I have proof that those posts were written by Dan Rather.
