    No now you're mistaking this for what occurs when you hit "submit reply".

    Your point?
    My point is I think he's being sarcastic. Mocking the interwebz.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Jack Cashill inaugurated this bit of fun in 2008 during the campaign. I think his piece was in the (ironically named) American Thinker.

    Then his sarcasm sucks because he has repeatedly made the claim for two years now.

    You'd figure someone would "get it" by now.

    not completely. Excerpts. And from them you can tell that there are two different writing styles at work.

    Yeah, I think he's trying to make a funny. The problem is that he sux at being teh funneh.



    IMO, Ayers didn't totally ghost-write Dreams, but he almost certainly did a lot of the heavy lifting.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    I don't think so.

    Nothing ironic about the name. And Cashill makes a number of points which are thought provoking. For those not inclined to take your word for it, they can read his analyses here: http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/...y_fathe_1.html, http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/...y_it_ma_1.html
    and
    http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/...of_hope_1.html

    First, his comparison between Dreams and Bill Ayers' Fugitive Days turned up a number of similarities. His QSUM analysis shows almost identical sentence structures, level of readability and grade level between the two books, and a significant disparity between Dreams and The Audacity of Hope, a much less sophisticated effort. His text comparisons find a number of unique themes, phrases and linguistic tics that appear in both Ayers' and Obama's books, but which do not appear in any of Obama's other writing samples. Finally, he produces examples of writing that is indisputably Obama's, from his few published articles, which demonstrate a far poorer command of language and grammar and a completely different style of writing than found in Dreams.

    I'm not sure I'd trust anything Bill Ayers says about the matter.

    Him being a world class ego maniac I'd have to believe him. Just like that Fema-nazi helped Al Bore durning his run for the President in 2000, she couldnt keep her mouth shut even when gores staff asked her to. Very hard for those types to stay quite.
