BASHIR: “So Sarah Palin used your name to smear the president with terrorism. But now here you are saying that the president's use of drones also constitutes terrorism. Is there not a certain irony to that?”
AYERS: “Well, I don't know, Sarah Palin, it's worth remembering, Martin, that the first person who introduced this narrative about the guilt by association was not Sarah Palin. It was Hillary Clinton. Clinton lost on that narrative, you know, the narrative being, ‘We don't know much about this charismatic, brilliant guy from Illinois, but we know he has some sketchy friends, Jeremiah wright, Rashid Khalidi, Bill Ayers.’ That didn't work then. But then Sarah Palin picked it up in that wonderful deathless phrase, ‘Palled around with terrorists.’ I immediately contacted her people and proposed that we do a show together called ‘Palling around with Sarah and Bill.’ I thought we could sell it to MSNBC or Fox or both at the same time. But apparently that didn't work out because she never got back to me. But the truth is.”
