The Voters Have Spoken… The Bastards.

100930bokloresActually, the voters haven’t spoken yet but Rich Lowry, in a column about Democratic leaders’ current contempt for the electorate, remembered that quip from Mo Udall in 1976. President Obama’s quip is that Democrats need to “buck up”. John Dickerson in Slate says this suggests he considers them “ignorant, inattentive, or lazy”. Biden just calls them “whiners”. And John Kerry adds that, “We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on.” Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson sums it up this way, “The American people are acting like a bunch of spoiled brats.” All this flattery is nicely covered in Victor Davis Hanson’s column here.

William McGurn, in his WSJ column today, dredged up some Joe Biden comments form 2007 on Iraq – “fundamental strategic mistake” to believe “there is any possibility in the lifetime of anyone here of having the Iraqis get together, have a unity government in Baghdad that pulls the country together. That will not happen, George.”

Biden: “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” (visit CNN for video)

Reid: …a “light-skinned” African American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,” (click here for Atlantic story)

I guess if Obama doesn’t think it’s a big deal that Biden and Reid speak in this strange dialect I don’t either.
