I'd call this the intellectual highlight of last night's Bill Maher show except that later Maher ended up asking Levi Johnston if he uses condoms now, so, hey. This is what I meant the other day about Democrats wanting to lash out at voters for being racist and crazy and Hitlerian enough to elect Republicans, but that's too much of a risk given how many centrists and independents are committed to voting for tea party candidates next month. You don't want to alienate any constituencies you might otherwise be able to win back in 2012. Better for the White House to stick to a more gently condescending line about voters "not thinking clearly" or whatever and let B-list surrogates like Rachel Maddow and Meathead here do the heavy lifting.
