DIMWITTERY….This afternoon I was trying to remember all of the dimwit stories about Democratic politicians that have somehow made the jump to mainstream media stardom in the past few weeks. I’ve got five:
Nancy Pelosi: the military jet flap
John Edwards: the Georgetown house flap, the foul-mouthed blogger flap
Barack Obama: the madrassa flap
Hillary Clinton: the “evil and bad men” flap
Two questions. First: am I missing any? I’m looking for the really dumb stuff that got picked up widely, not just run-of-the mill hackery. Second: since I admit that dimwit stories about conservative politicians are more likely to fly under my radar, have there been any of those in the past month that I’ve missed? I can’t remember any.
