Breaking his silence today, Ayers said that the GOP attack was a "dishonest narrative ... to demonize me."
"I don't buy the idea that guilt by association should have any part of our politics," he said.
Ayers scoffed at the Republican effort to make his ties to Obama appear suspicious.
"This idea that we need to know more, like there's some dark, hidden secret, some secret link," Ayers said. "It's a myth thrown up by people who want to exploit the politics of fear."
Anywho, it's a pretty good interview, but I'm slightly bothered by Chris Cuomo as the interviewer.

Second, I'm not trying to defend Ayers, but Cuomo consistently asks loaded questions and, at times, is downright rude. It's like he keeps trying to "trick" him into admitting he and Obama were friends.
