John McCain came out with guns a-blazing today as he slammed the L.A. Times for withholding a video of Barack Obama purportedly celebrating with well-known anti-Semite Rashid Khalidi and other leftist radicals such as Bill Ayers [gee, what a group of wild and crazy guys!]:
“I guarantee you, if there was a tape with me and Sarah Palin and some neo-Nazi or one of those, you think that that tape wouldn’t be made public? Of course, Americans need to know, particularly about Ayers, and also about the PLO. So hopefully there will be enough pressure on the L.A. Times that it’ll come out, but its really unfortunate that we have to go through this.”
Sarah Palin also had a message for the Times:
‘And if there’s a Pulitzer Prize category for excelling in cow-towing, then the LA Times, you’re winning. But it’s not too late, and if there is an ounce of credibility there, if the newspaper wants to keep that shred of credibility, let alone its dignity, than I say the public has a right to know. Let’s go to the videotape, LA Times.”
And from Gateway Pundit, we learn that money is being offered for the release of the tape [this sounds disturbingly like a kidnapping, doesn’t it?]. Will the LA Times do the decidedly right thing and release the tape?
