John Hood speaks for the right

Sad, really, to see the stagemanager in his tea party finest.

He doesn't understand

that those comments reveal more about him than they do about Obama. Or maybe he does, and he's trying to tap into a less intellectual market.

Tap into?

What's the cliche'...Birds of a feather.

The GOP talking points

Let's see: Smart (really smart), understands complex issues, can explain complex issues. No, we don't leaders like *that*.

I was surprised too

I was surprised at the comments of Chris Matthews as well. I'll bet he and Harry Reid can tell some good jokes. What do you think?

So does local TV

Heard this morning on WTVD-11 news report of group from "Americans for Prosperity, a non-partisan organization" met at the behest of the John Locke Foundation to watch and critique SOTU

I never meant to say that the Conservatives are generally stupid. I meant to say that stupid people are generally Conservative. I believe that is so obviously and universally admitted a principle...

A non partisan organization in the technical and legal sense, that happens to be filled with partisan zealots in the "we <3 baggers" sense.
