The name of the ship: The Audacity of Hope. I'm not making that up.
As I detailed in NRO on the eve of the 2008 presidential election, the Los Angeles Times has had in its possession, but has suppressed from the public, a videotape of Khalidi's 2003 going-away bash, when he left the University of Chicago to become the Edward Said Professor of Arabic Studies at Columbia. Then state Sen. Barack Obama gave a glowing tribute.From accounts that came out before the election, the party essentially turned into a Jew bashing session, and there were suspicions that unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers was at the party.
The LA Times refused to release the tape, despite an outcry...another example of how the so-called mainstream media were lapdogs for the Obama candidacy. See the Daily Caller story of how the lapdogs conspired to kill the racist Rev. Wright story.
