"Democrats are the regular guys & Conservatives are the weirdos." This writer got it right!Submitted by ausscyn on Wed, 01/30/2013 - 19:20
After the utter dismay I felt in reading our Nevada Committeeman's memorandum today regarding the RNC Winter Meeting, I happened upon this editorial & actually agree with this writer from the Daily Beast:
I can actually see, to some extent, the point of conservatives’ complaints about the Obama-Hillary 60 Minutes interview. It was softbally, and Steve Kroft’s one real question—to Clinton, about whether she felt any guilt or remorse over Benghazi—she totally didn’t answer. But here, conservatives, is what you are missing and what you need to reckon with. Americans—except you—like these two people. Most Americans look at the pair of them—this black man who is still remote in some ways and this so-familiar woman who is now aging before us and allowing herself to look just a little frumpy—and feel reassured. Most Americans are cheering for them, and hence, most Americans probably wanted a softball interview. We have thus passed an important portal in American politics: Democrats are now the regular guys. Conservatives are the weirdos.
