What The Fuck?

They've really got this down to a science now. Palin:
Despite the Obama campaign’s rebuttal, Palin insisted that there is more to the story than is being reported by major media outlets. The Alaska governor said that like Obama’s association to 1960s radical Bill Ayers, there is still “too much ignorance and ignoring of his association” with the group.
The formula goes like this: Make broad accusations that cannot possibly be proved untrue and then claim the accused is hiding something when they're unable to provide satisfactory "evidence" of their innocence.

I can't believe people fall for this... it's so timelessly, fuckingly blatant.

I remember learning in grade school about the Salem witch hunts. I remember hearing the old "if you're innocent of committing witchcraft, you'll die when we drown you" logic and thinking that those people must have been total and complete morons.

Prove you don't secretly hate your country.
Prove you aren't really a muslim.
Prove William Ayers didn't write your books.
Prove you're not a Manchurian candidate.

The whole thing is so stupid it hurts.
