Yup, Obama's just too smart for you small town yokels to understand. You under edumacated people can't handle smart people. You mean like my paternal relatives who are wheat farmers in the wilds of South Dakota, with every kid a college graduate, all homes wired for Internet, and who can talk at length about the chemical composition of the soil? Those kind of small town people?
The Republican party and some of the blogs and others on the far right, are trying very hard to paint a picture of this man, they’re trying the best as they can to mischaracterize who he is and what he stands for.
All this stuff about how different Barack Obama is, they’re not just used to somebody really smart. They’re just not used to somebody who’s really well educated. They just don’t know quite how to handle it. Cause if he’s as smart as Barack is he must not be from my neighborhood.
This is another data point in my thinking about where Howard Dean is trying to take the party.
