Playing the Ayers Card

Andrew Sullivan acts rather surprised that some conservative group has now openly played the Ayers card in an advertisement. First, I can't believe anyone is surprised by this. Second, yes, it's despicable. Third, no, it doesn't seem accurate to call Ayers a "friend" of Obama's...though I have to say, if it were me, I wouldn't even speak to the guy. Fourth: yes, I think this ad will work. In fact, I think there's a decent chance that a few months from now we'll look back on this as the swift boat ad of 2008.
