Which is more ridiculous?

Is it more ridiculous that the former First Lady, former Wal-Mart board member, and now Senator from New York -- a woman who was accused once of mocking other women who stayed home to bake cookies -- now accuses her opponent of being an elitist?

Or that Senator-for-life McCain, a war hero who has basked for years in the glow of Senate privilege and power, has joined the Senator from New York in assailing the elitist habits of mind of the former Chicago community organizer, state legislator and now the young Senator from Illinois?

It's hard to imagine anyone less in touch with average people than a Senator - and the longer they sit in that privileged place, the worse they get. In this respect, Obama's "lack of experience" should be a good counter-argument to the ridiculous charge, if reason had any place in this debate.

Can this kind of thing continue till June? Let's hope not.

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."


-- Cecil Day-Lewis from Where Are The War Poets?
