I heard part of this today and I was annoyed because it was full of softballs but none more so that two issues discussed sequentially which just begged for a followup.

First, Smerconish asked if Obama was familiar with the Mumia case and Obama said no but he hadnt studied it but he was for either death or life imprisonment for people who killed cops.

Then the Ayers question was raised in the context of "I take it at your word that you didnt really know him but what do you make of McCain bringing this up" sort of way (I told you, softballs). Obama poo-pooed it and said he didnt agree with Ayers, and he served with businessmen and republicans on the same board and McCain was just trying to change the subject.

Hey, Ayers bombed NYC Police HQ! He tried to kill many police officers! Obama said people who kill cops deserve the death penalty but he works with Ayers!?

Amazing. And no follow-up. Puff piece.
