You can see how shocking it is for me to then see — where Ben Smith works — run accusations against Herman Cain based exclusively on anonymous sources who would not give their names for the record.
This is a complete reversal of the standard Ben Smith and others insisted upon when it was Barack Obama, a Democrat, and not Herman Cain, a Republican, who was the subject of a story that raised questions about the candidate’s personal judgment and past behavior.
I tend to find that there were a few specific companies that were producing their garments with nylon zips relatively early on. I have had five or six dresses by the brand, all with nylon zips and all dating from the late Fifties.
Zips before the Thirties were metal, although in the early Thirties a number of companies began to experiment with using celluloid (plastic) to make zips.
Schiaparelli was a pioneer in the early usage of zips.
Mallory was willing to speak with Ben Smith at Politico about the times she personally observed William Ayers pick up the Obama daughters for events, and how Michelle Obama personally authorized William Ayers to be able to pick up the children from these events.
William Ayers clearly had parental permission to babysit these children as a close family friend given that authority by the Obamas.
