The Bill Ayers Game

May 5, 2010

One of my friends (and yes, a friend, not a ‘friend’) recently posted the following on Facebook:

I can’t believe the attempted Time Square bomber is a registered Democrat?!? I thought for sure he’d be one of those right-wing Tea Bagger nut jobs…

The post compels me to remind everybody that the only successful terrorist attack of recent memory was carried out by someone whose views fervent belief in small government were relatively similar to the Tea Party crowd. That is not to say that the Tea Partiers encourage terrorism but to point out that, if we’re going to play the Bill Ayers guilt-by-association game, the right is currently losing. Of course, if we’re looking for someone sympathetic to the Austin IRS building attacker, we don’t have to go all the way to the Tea Party fringe: Rep. King (D-IA) is happy to fill that role for us. That said, it’s a dumb game anyway.
