So, after not letting up on John McCain's last minute cancellation of a few weeks ago, Late Show host David Letterman gave the Arizona senator a chance to explain himself ("I screwed up") and, despite a promise to put recent differences behind, came at him with hard questions.
But the one question that NO ONE in the political media had asked McCain was finally proffered by the comedic late-night icon: if Obama's relationship with a terrorist (William Ayers) is questionable, what about McCain's relationship with a terrorist of his own? In this case, he was referring to G. Gordon Liddy.
"Did you not have a relationship with Gordon Liddy?"
"I know Gordon Liddy. He paid his debt, he went to prison ... I'm not in any way embarrassed to know Gordon Liddy."
"You understand the same case could be made of your relationship with him as is being made with William Ayers?"
No, Dave: Ayers was a leftie. Everything and anyone are all good and justifiable when they're right-wing nuts. Even a convicted criminal, Hitler aopologist, who has advocated for the shooting of federal law enforcement agents, and equates environmentalists with Osama Bin Laden, like G. Gordon Liddy. Such a bullshit double standard.
Here's a comparison between Ayers and Liddy.
