Obama campaign lashes out at Stanley Kurtz

How dare a lowly conservative columnist unearth public records about the Obamessiah’s friendship and work history with an unrepentant terrorist? Stanley Kurtz had the gall to speak about the Anointed One’s ties to Bill Ayers in a radio interview, and he will be punished.

Subject: Chicago: CALL TONIGHT to fight the latest smear
[Name] —
In the next few hours, we have a crucial opportunity to fight one of the most cynical and offensive smears ever launched against Barack.
Tonight, WGN radio is giving right-wing hatchet man Stanley Kurtz a forum to air his baseless, fear-mongering terrorist smears. He’s currently scheduled to spend a solid two-hour block from 9:00 to 11:00 p.m. pushing lies, distortions, and manipulations about Barack and University of Illinois professor William Ayers.
Tell WGN that by providing Kurtz with airtime, they are legitimizing baseless attacks from a smear-merchant and lowering the standards of political discourse.

It is absolutely unacceptable that WGN would give a slimy character assassin like Kurtz time for his divisive, destructive ranting on our public airwaves. At the very least, they should offer sane, honest rebuttal to every one of Kurtz’s lies.
Kurtz is scheduled to appear from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. in the Chicago market.
Calling will only take a minute, and it will make a huge difference if we nip this smear in the bud. Confront Kurtz tonight before this goes any further:

The candidate doth protest too much, methinks.

Update: Andy McCarthy reacts during and after the interview. The Obama cultists didn’t exactly shine.
