The Voters Have Spoken… The Bastards.
Actually, 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.
