“People of Earth! Stop Your Bickering"

I liked this column by Jonah Goldberg, No Change. I do have to mention that this item

...Perhaps therein lies the answer to this supposed mystery. Indeed, perhaps there’s no mystery at all, and Obama’s problems are the same problems Democrats always have at the presidential level: He’s an elitist...

was pointed out here last April:

...I think my dear wife just captured Mr Obama's essence perfectly. She said, "He's a white liberal elitist."

I think Charlene hit the nail more squarely. Anyway, Jonah's piece has some great lines...

...Ask the typical Obama supporter why this should be so [tied in polls with McCain] and you’ll get a range of answers. Some just stare at the poll numbers the way my late basset hound would look at me when I tried to feed him a grape: with pure unblinking incomprehension. Others act like the guy who sits alone with his shopping bags at the public library, muttering about Fox News conspiracies and how Karl Rove-like aliens are doing terrible things with probes of proctological exactitude. Still others just shake their heads at the racism of anyone who could possibly have a problem with a very left-wing politician with almost no experience, who often sounds like his campaign slogan is: “People of Earth! Stop Your Bickering. I Am From Harvard, And I’m Here To Help.”...
