In the same video where Barack Obama agrees that age-appropriate kindgergarten sex education is the “right thing to do,” he makes fun of those who choose to get their news from sources he doesn’t like:
As I travel around the country, the American people are a decent people. And they get confused sometimes. And they listen to the wrong talk radio shows and watch the wrong TV networks, um, but they’re, they’re basically decent, they’re basically sound.
(Via Yuval Levin.)
Has John McCain ever said his fellow Americans listen to the wrong radio networks or read the wrong newspapers and wrong blogs?
Can you imagine how the MSM would react if he did?
I guess Barack Obama’s new kind of politics extends beyond voting the party line, it also includes mocking the media some Americans choose to read, hear and watch.
UPDATE: I initially put this update on this post, but realized it also belongs here. No wonder Clinton fundraiser Democratic National Committee Platform Committee member “Lynn Forester de Rothschild has said she thinks Democratic nominee Barack Obama is arrogant and has a problem connecting with average Americans.” After “bringing in more than $100,000 for” Hillary, Ms. de Rothschild is backing John McCain.
