Every time I hear the McCain/Palin campaign’s rants about the Ayers issue, I think, read the papers – the Dow is down about 1,000,000 points, no one cares about your shameful Swiftboat-like attacks.  Unfortunately, one of the occupational hazards of having fall break is that I’m forced to watch The View, and you guessed it, Elisabeth Hasselbeck does care.  Very much. And somehow I think she’s not the only one.

Which is why I was glad to see this awesome Gail Collins column in the New York Times yesterday.  By McCain standards, many of us have a guilt-by-association-worthy connection.  McCain included.

Note: Elisabeth Hasselbeck makes me want to tear out my hair.  Why the hell do I watch The View?
