A partial examination of the documents did not reveal anything startling about the link between Obama, the Democratic presidential contender, and Ayers, a founder of the Weather Underground, a Vietnam-era anti-war group that claimed responsibility for several bombings. Ayers, who spent years in hiding, is now a UIC education professor.

Huh, no shit. There are Chicago links of much greater interest and concern (it’s kind of messed up, but you can still read most of it; see also), like to this guy–who has heretofore been much more closely involved with Ayers with much less controversy–but there doesn’t seem to be any interest in the finer points of local politics. I guess it’s hard to turn a popular mayor into an albatross but it seems more engrossing than the shitfit over the DNC backdrop.
