Yesterday Obama's Campaign Manager David Axelrod said Obama "didn't know" about Ayers' radical past when he went to his home in 1995.

Today, Communications Director Robert Gibbs said he didn't know anything about it other than "what I read in the newspapers."

Those comments were capped off by Spokesman Bill Burton lying and saying his candidate "never" wrote a blurb for Ayers' book on the juvenile justice system and dodging all questions about Ayers.

They're either clueless about their own candidate's radical history or completely willing to deny everything. In Burton's case, it's a little bit of both.
