For months I've been encouraging people to get off their couches and ask the candidates tough questions, without luck. But, here's a chance for John McCain fans to ask Obama something McCain wants to know, and it's a very straightforward question about Obama's involvement with William Ayers.
For a few years starting in 1995, BHO chaired the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, which was founded by Bill Ayers. The University of Chicago has a large number of records on the CAC which they were going to show to Stanley Kurtz of National Review, until they backtracked at the last moment claiming they need a release from the unnamed donor of the records. Now, McCain is making this an issue:
"The question now is, will Barack Obama immediately call on the University of Illinois to release all of the records they are currently withholding to shed further light on Senator Obama's relationship with this unrepentant terrorist?" —McCain spokesman Brian Rogers
The campaign wants the answer to this question, but whether the mainstream media will ask BHO is a very open question.
That's where McCain fans can step in, by going to BHO's appearances and asking him during a Q&A session. Video of his response can then be uploaded to Youtube and similar sites. The question could be something as simple as this paraphrase of the above:
"Will you immediately call on the University of Illinois to release all of the records they are currently withholding to shed further light on your relationship with the Chicago Annenberg Challenge and William Ayers?"
All you need to do is write that down on a card and read it, making sure to get Obama's answer on videotape and then uploading that video to Youtube immediately and promoting it through blogs and the like.
