Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Quote of the day, “Dan Rather links Obama and watermelons” edition

When I first read about this, I had to make sure it was authentic, i.e. not on one of Dan Rather’s memos.  Nope, it’s real.  Here’s what the disgraced former newsman said to Leg Tingles Matthews on MSDNC about B.O.’s inability to get America to drink the Kool-Aid on socialized medicine:

Part of the undertow in the coming election is going to be President Obama’s leadership. And the Republicans will make a case and a lot of independents will buy this argument. “Listen he just hasn’t been, look at the health care bill. It was his number one priority. It took him forever to get it through and he had to compromise it to death.” And a version of, “Listen he’s a nice person, he’s very articulate” this is what’s been used against him, “but he couldn’t sell watermelons if it, you gave him the state troopers to flag down the traffic.”

The video clip is at this link, and you’ll note Tingles trying to talk over Gunga Dan in order to prevent further humiliation.  Both of Matthews’ viewers were mortified.

Exit question (and one that you can see coming a mile away): Care to imagine what the reaction would be from the left and the MSM (pardon the redundancy) had this analogy come from a conservative?
