Obama's Kinseleyan Gaffe

So, Harvard Law Review is out in San Francisco winning the hearts and minds of his fellow travelers and he says this about the rubes in flyover country:
"You go into some of these small towns in Pennsylvania, a lot of them — like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they’ve gone through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, and they cling to guns, or religion, or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment, or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations." Click here to hear it.

Translation: None needed, this is exactly what he thinks about the squirrel eatin, tobacco chawin, cousin humpin rednecks who have the temerity to exercise the first two amendments to the Constitution on a regular basis. Fair enough, but does he really think this will prompt the folks in dog patch to vote for him? This, in brief, is why HRC is staying in the race.
