Does EJ Dionne have editors?

Isn't someone supposed to check his dumb questions? Or he just uninformed and out of touch?

In this morning’s Washington Post, EJ Dionne, in a screed against the right, asks:

Yet McCain’s own campaign is playing with powerful extremist themes to denigrate Obama. When his running mate, Sarah Palin, first brought up Obama’s association with 1960s radical Bill Ayers, who has become a centerpiece of McCain’s attacks, she accused Obama of “palling around with terrorists.” What other “terrorists” was she thinking about?

How about … Bernadine Dohrn, Bill Ayers wife? Remember her? She was on FBI’s 10 most wanted list.

Remember, she couldn’t pass the bar because she “wouldn’t say she’s sorry.” Sound like any unrepentant terrorists you know?

That’s who Obama was “palling around” with. I knew that in 2 seconds. why didn’t Dionne or his editors? Or were they just being intellectually dishonest?

Incidentally, what kind of person allows a woman who was on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list to be a child advocate? Would you want your children near someone like that? Would you want that kind of person advocating for your child?

Dionne, would you really feel comfortable entrusting your children to someone on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list who “wouldn’t say she’s sorry”?
