Why does Sidley & Austin hate America?

To my knowledge there's just one man
That's really a true American: George Lincoln Rockwell.
I know for a fact he hates Commies 'cause he picketed the movie Exodus.

--Bob Dylan, "Talkin' John Birch Paranoid Blues"

A couple days ago Michael Miner put together the nexus of crooks and terrorists that Barack Obama is part of by way of working with the Annenberg Foundation. Now, he's a long-time Chicago journalist and one of the city's most perceptive observers, but apparently he missed a huge connection. Michelle Obama once worked at the same law firm as Bill Ayers's Weatherman wife, Bernadine Dohrn: the radical terrorist-supporting fringe outfit Sidley & Austin (motto: "Palling around with terrorists since 1866")! So saith the McCain campaign!

OCI friends: beware!

Update: Here's what I don't get. The people who think Obama is a terrorist/traitor/whatever are clearly not going to vote for him. Is the McCain campaign that scared of not getting the top tenth of one percent of the craziest part of the base out? It's like if the Obama camp put all their resources into the vote of people who hand out the Socialist Worker. It just doesn't make any sense, unless it's some subconscious desire to commit electoral suicide. I'd say they've run out of ideas, but there are so many more plausible smears that seem really obvious. I'm flummoxed.
