Republicans Tried to Enlist Dr. Peter Millican in Smear of Obama

| No Comments

Dr. Peter Millican, a "Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy" at Hertford College at Oxford University in England, reveals in the November 2, 2008, edition of Sunday Times Online that:

Last Sunday I received an urgent call from Bob, a man close to a Republican congressman in the American west. He wanted to enlist my services to prove a scandalous allegation against Barack Obama, which would surely affect his prospects in the forthcoming election. Namely, that his famous 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father, on which so much of his reputation was built, was in fact written largely by Bill Ayers, a Vietnam-era domestic terrorist.

I guess even a smart man with African blood can't have his name on a thoughtful, well-written book without some folk thinking a white man must have written it.
