So maybe he's not so perfect, after all.
No, I'm not referring to Guillermo, my pool boy. Of course — he's perfect, even with the hare lip.
I'm referring to Senator Barack Obama, who in reference to people living in small towns said, "They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment... as a way to explain away their frustrations."
Obama has since said he is sorry, confessing that he "didn't say it as well as I should have." Meaning: He spoke his mind, which he regrets.
And I congratulate him, for he said what everyone on the left has always believed: That if you don't live on the coasts, you're a bible-toting, gun-wielding nutcase who speaks in tongues on Sunday and tongues his daughter on Monday. Worse, you probably don't own "The West Wing" on DVD! Inbred.
See, Obama simply blurted out what the Democratic Party always believed. But it screws him more: Obama accuses people of clinging to religion out of desperation — but then what is Jeremiah Wright, if not a leech that feeds off hopelessness and gloom of those around him?
Hillary cannot gloat, for she, like Obama, also sees most of America as a flat land full of fools — people incapable of taking care of themselves or making decisions for their families. Both Hillary and Obama think government can do that far better than we ever could. And that's elitism and idiocy at its best.
So maybe they are ideal running mates.
