Professional dirt-bag Andrew Sullivan takes the Democratic attack meme that voters are too stupid to appreciate Obama, which Michelle Obama translated as “they don’t know … people are confused”, and distills it into it’s essence: “Obama critics are dumb”.
I think our brilliant readers are right to call this The Cootie Theory of Politics.* When you stand for nothing and have nothing to campaign on or for, just convince the voters that the other side has cooties.
Sarah Palin points out the sliminess of Newseek’s writer source in a tweet:
@Newsweek: know what’s truly “dumb”? Giving a cover story to the TrigTruther conspiracy kook writer who thinks I didn’t give birth to my son
Any guesses on what Newsweek’s next cover will be?
Maybe “Your mama is trash if you don’t vote Obama.”
Since it’s Tuesday, feel free to share your latest tin-foil theory.
