Just call me Paul the Professor
Colbert, via Crooks and Liars:
I for one appreciate the McCain campaign treating us like children. McCain will bring us back to a simpler time. A time when you could identify your neighbors’ jobs by the hats they wore. Like Sam the Fireman, Bill the Cowboy and Jose the stereotype. These are the people in your neighborhood. The people that you meet when you’re walking down the street. They’re the people that you meet each day. And what the people in your neighborhood, the Joe the Plumber, the Wendy the Waitress need are tax cuts for the wealthy and off shore drilling. They don’t need universal health care or last names.
This seems to be the Republican meme. “Just let the “decider” make the all the tough decisions”. All of us self-thinking geeks who place too much credence in intelligence and education, be it formal or the school of hard knocks, aren’t “real Americans”. In the last couple of weeks we are being called “un-American”, Socialist, even Communists by the Republican Party…Way to go folks.
