 You see that distinguished looking man next to Ronald Reagan? There are four very important things you should know about him.

1. He was close friends with Ronald and Nancy Reagan.

2. He was a lifelong, stalwart Republican and even served as Richard Nixon's ambassador to Great Britain (perhaps the most important ambassadorship in the world).

3. He was pallin' around with terrorists.

4. His name is Walter Annenberg, the primary funder of the Annenberg Challenge, the charity board on which Barack Obama served at the same time as Bill Ayers in the mid-1990's.


So, Bill Ayers was good enough for one of Ronald Reagan's close friends. Good enough for a prominent, life-long wealthy Republican philanthropist, good enough for a former Republican Ambassador to our number one ally, Great Britain.

But he is a terrorist to John McCain and Sara Palin. And anyone who ever served on that Board with him, apparently, is suspect as an American and may in fact be a terrorist too. And the funder of that entire organization is surely, highly questionable for allowing a terrorist to serve on the Board of Directors, right?

Wonder why they have never said that about St. Ronald Reagan's old buddy Walter Annenberg?

Wanna know who else they have not said it about?

The Annenberg Challenge's founding board members:

Patricia Albjerg Graham, currently a leading historian of American education at Harvard University

Stanley O. Ikenberry, president of the University of Illinois (1979-1995); member of the Civic Committee of the Commercial Club of Chicago (1983-1995); former professor of education (1965-1971) and senior vice president (1971-1979) of Pennsylvania State University
