"It makes me bitter," Reid said.
The Politico, which reported the item, then observes that Reid doesn't look very funny.
Showing that she also has a sense of humor, or maybe it's just a sense of desperation, the former first lady is clinging to Obama's belaboring of the obvious as if his remarks were her god or her gun, and running an ad. Which Obama is answering with an ad of his own.
And since you know you were wondering what the socialists are saying:
The response from the American media, once his remarks were published, was immediate and hostile. Obama was guilty of a “blunder,” he had “offended” rural America, he faced “a full-blown political disaster.” A commentary on the influential web site politico.com said, “this is a potential turning point for Obama’s campaign,” one that could result in the loss of the Democratic nomination to New York Senator Hillary Clinton.
It is instructive to compare this reaction to the treatment of the speech on race relations that Obama delivered last month in response to controversial comments made by the ex-pastor of his Chicago church, Rev. Jeremiah Wright. The bulk of the media treated Obama’s address favorably—an indication that in the America of 2008, class divisions are a much more sensitive issue than race.
Plus, Obama left out Iraq, the socialists noted, all Gleaner like.
