Milwaukee's ridiculous medium wave jackanapes Charlie Sykes notices a Ben Smith item at Politico.com — labeling it "Barry leaves 'em laughing about that uppity broad" — which inspires the following self-righteous admonitions: "YOU STAY CLASSY, BARRY. Why dont [sic] you just come out and call her ... a bitter clinger?"
So, what was Barack Obama's outrageous sin? Why, he paid tribute to John McCain's running soulmate, Sarah Palin, as a "Mother, governor, moose shooter" to reportedly comic effect at a campaign stop.
I wonder where in the world Obama came up with that.
Most likely the Republican Party's own official biographical video, broadcast to several million viewers from its own national convention in St. Paul last week, whose own dramatic narration begins: "Mother, moose hunter, maverick. Mayor, governor, maverick."
It's okay if you're a Republican, as the saying goes.
Meanwhile, it was a Republican congressman from Georgia, Lynn Westmoreland, who really did refer to the Obamas as "uppity."
Needless to say, Charlie Sykes did not see fit to disgorge his signature fatuous bilge in that instance.
Apparently he didn't get cc'd on the hypocrisy memo.
