A fascinating read for those on the right who pay attention to WaPo writers and Politico.com contributors who are out-of-touch with conservatives in this country.
No surprise there, but the language used to write this story confirms everything that we know about the MSM.
Politico.com writers John Harris and Jim Van de Hei start their piece What Hillary Might Say in a fairly even-handed way.
It's not until page 2, that they get really nasty.
Van de Hei and Harris posit that John Kerry and Al Gore lost control of their campaign ‘message’ during their respective presidential bids because the ‘right-wing’ freak show’ viewed them as elitist, snobby, and unpatriotic.
Linked from Politico.comThe last two Democratic nominees, Al Gore and John F. Kerry, were both military veterans, and both had been familiar, highly successful figures in national politics for more than two decades by the time they ran.
Both men lost control of their public images to the right-wing freak show — that network of operatives and commentators working mostly outside of the mainstream media — and ultimately lost their elections as many voters came to see them as elitist, out-of-touch, phony, and even unpatriotic.
Obama is a much less familiar figure than Kerry or Gore, with a life story that is far more exotic, who is coming out of a political milieu in Chicago politics that is far more liberal.
The freak show has already signaled its early lines of attack on Obama. Polls show a significant percentage of Americans believe — falsely — that he is a Muslim. Voter interviews reveal widespread unease with minor and seemingly irrelevant questions like why he does not favor American flag pins on his lapel. Nor have we heard the last about Wright and his fulminations..
ALERT THE MEDIA!
Al Gore and John Kerry ARE unpatriotic, elitist and snobby.
John O’Neill of Swift Boat Veterans proved the unpatriotic description of John Kerry, (facts never proved wrong) and numerous other news sources have described Al Gore’s swing from center right to left-wing babbling that al-Qaida isn't in Iraq, how we have lost the war, the surge is a failure yada, yada, yada.
Both men are multi-millionaires, Kerry because he married the widow of a rich Republican, and Al Gore because he made a fortune by ‘hoaxing’ the public over global warming.
Let’s not forget these men are connected to the wealthy, Democrat elite who put them on the boards of some companies who agree with their ridiculous positions, and give them stock options that would make George Soros blush, if he were capable of such human emotion.
