I wish Obama and his staff would knock off these kinds of jibes, but even so it doesn't make sense to go this ballistic over a casual remark at a fundraising event. Maybe we should all ease up a bit on this stuff.First of all, it's not "just a casual remark at a fundraising event." It's "f***ing retarded." It's "the professional left." It's consistent with a pattern of thumbing your nose at your base. All of which is politically stupid a) in your first term, when you're vulnerable; and b) when the country's in shitty shape.
"Knock off these kinds of jibes"? Is he serious?
