time-gopass.jpg How can you tell the Republican Party is terrified of Barack Obama's rise to prominence? Following his appearance on Letterman last night, they put together a Top 10 list of his worst "fabrications." If this is his "top" 10, I must say he's in pretty good shape. Look at the pathetic smear attempts:

#10: Obama Was A Constitutional Law Professor:

#9: Obama's Parents "Got Together" Because Of The 1965 Selma March:

#8: Obama Was Fluent In Indonesian As A Child:

#7: Obama Mistakenly Received A Letter From A Company In Which He Owned Stock:

#6: Obama's Campaign Only Had "Very Attenuated" Ties To The "1984" Ad Creator:


#5: Obama's Campaign Didn't Have The "Technical Capacity" To Produce The "1984" Ad:

#4: Obama's Campaign Claimed His High School Friend Tried To Extort Money From Them:

#3: Obama Places Himself In The Central Role In The Altgeld Gardens Asbestos Campaign:

#2: Obama Had Heated Discussions With A High School Friend Named "Ray" About Racial Issues:

#1: Seeing A Photograph In Life Or Ebony Magazine Changed Obama's Life:

If anyone feels up to it, put together a Top 10 list for any of the GOP frontrunners. Here's a little head start on John McCain, Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani. Hell, we'll throw in Newt Gingrich for good measure, too.
