2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
Thought the NY Times actually did a reasonable balanced job of reviewing the Decision Points memoir. Certainly didn't give it accolades, but it seems like a balanced critique. (Haven't read the book yet myself, so I am giving them (NYT) the benefit of the doubt...)

Whovian @ A comparison of Ayers and Obama writings was done using techniques called QSUM (Cumulative Sum Technique) and FRES (Fleish Reading Ease Score). Through these techniques and direct textual comparisons of Obama's 'Dreams of My Father' and Ayers 'Fugitive Days', it appears very likely that Ayer's was the ghost writer for Obama.
Ayers was just some guy in Obama's neighborhood.
Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
I'm not entirely convinced that the authors of the reviews are intellectually seeing the connection between the writings of Woodward, Feith, or anyone else. I've seen many journalists through my studies take a few shortcuts to arrive at a somewhat safe conclusion, or at least one that is in the realm of acceptability for the masses. It takes too much time for them to do otherwise.

"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."
Where's all the liberal outrage at the Clinton's for using ghost writers? All the other liberal politicians who've done it. Where?
Oh... wait... I forgot... it's only lazy writing if you have an R after your name.
almost 4 hours, and not a single lin has 'explained' why 'this is different' in regards to the outrage that Bush used a ghostwriter, as did both Clintons, and a whole host of other politicians on BOTH sides of the great divide.
I smell their fear.
