Explaining Obama’s Ayers Ad

An astute reader wonders if the Obama/Ayers ad isn’t a pre-emptive strike against the forthcoming Annenberg document dump. If all of a sudden thousands of pages of documentation were to reveal that Obama and Ayers had a very close association over a long period of time, destroying Obama’s weak just-a-guy-in-my-neighborhood defense, then getting ahead of the issue forcefully might (and I stress might) make sense.

But if the Annenberg archives establish an intimate connection between the two and/or reaveal something even more damaging to boot, it’s hard to see that as anything other than bad news for Obama — no matter how much he tries to get in front of the issue.
