Here’s what they really think of voters:
But I think, in many ways, it might be the same mood that elected Obama. Remember: most ordinary schmucks aren’t politics junkies. They’re not ideologically consistent. They were hurting a year ago and a vote for Barack Obama was a flip of the bird to the status quo; they’re still hurting and the most anti-Obama vote possible is seen as exactly the same thing. People just want something to change.
It’s not personal. Whether you voted for Obama or not, you’re just an “ordinary schmuck.”
And they wonder why people are fed up and speaking up. It’s not extremism, but a revulsion against being insulted and demeaned.
I hope voters in Virginia, New Jersey and upstate NY remember this when they walk into the voting booth.
