OK, I will admit that until just very recently I had no idea of what “terrorist” William Ayers looks like. (I’ve been meaning to catch the 2002 documentary “The Weather Underground,” but I’ve yet to do so.)
I had figured, since President-elect Barack Obama had been accused by Repugnican Sarah Palin-Quayle of having “palled around” with “terrorist” Ayers, Ayers must be some bad-ass. Not too much of a bad-ass “terrorist,” because the man is not in prison but is a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago and because the “terrorist” group “Weather Underground” never actually, um, hurt anyone, but still somewhat of a bad-ass.
But shit, I just very recently have seen what Ayers looks like, and the man sets off my gaydar:

This is a bad-ass terrorist? What did he do? Did he set off some gay bombs?
Ya know, I feel pretty safe now that Barack Obama does not, in fact, have a history of cavorting with bad-ass terrorists…
