Palin: Obama Is "Palling Around With Terrorists"

(CBS)
From CBS News' Scott Conroy:

(DENVER) It's safe to say that the gloves are now officially off.

At a fundraiser in Denver, Sarah Palin seized on a New York Times story about Barack Obama's alleged connection to former Weather Underground member William Ayers.

"Our opponent though is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect, imperfect enough that he's palling around with terrorists who would target their own country," Palin said.

Palin said that she brought up the connection "in fairness to the electorate."

"We gotta start telling people what the other side represents," Palin said.
