McCain-Palin Trainwreck Excuse du Jour

13th in a series on the best
excuses for the GOP disaster
These are tough times for Ed Morrissey. While the Hot Air commentator's support for John McCain was always kind of tepid, he's been grasping at straws as the Republican ticket implodes, and no straw has been graspier than the Bill Ayers "connection, which Ed more or less concedes is a non story in incessantly focusing on the old "the cover-up is worse" than the crime meme:
"On a more serious note, this wouldn’t be an issue if the Obama campaign would stop lying about the nature of his relationship with Ayers. They’ve continually fibbed about it when the public record is pretty clear that they formed a political alliance meant to boost Obama’s electoral career. Their inability to be honest about this relationship is what makes these lesser revelations more significant than they should be. A modest blurb on an obscure book would have no meaning at all absent the fact that Team Obama lied about it on two separate occasions."
What crime, Ed? Pathetic.
