The Real Bill Ayers Scandal

Among so many other Questions that Will Not Die (Where is the real birth certificate?  Where is Judge Crater?  Who is  buried in Grant's Tomb?)--I note that another: the notion that aging ex-terrorist Bill Ayers ghosted Barack Obama's autobiography.  But has anyone ever considered the possibility that it is just the other way round--that it is Obama who ghostwrites for Ayers?  Tactically, which is more damning--that the poster child of spoiled-rich rebellion is actually the fountainhead of perhaps the only readable presidential biography ever written; or that our Kenyan-born fantasy President is really a tiresome and contentious old  whiner?

Aside to Underbelly acolytes: no, no relation.  UB's doppelganger spells his name without an s.

"Who is buried in Grant's Tumb?"

Now I know why Pooh had a rumbly in his Tumbly; he was echoing Dickens.

(The answer to the other question is, of course, no one--it's an above-ground structure. That Jimmy Hoffa may have been added underneath is not assumed.)
