IOKIYAR ... On Steroids!

It was only a matter of time before the partisans at Fox News came up with this one:
Fox News: “Is Obama Bashing ‘American Dream’ By Bashing McCain’s 7 Homes?”

On Fox News’ Your World, host Neil Cavuto defended John McCain’s inability to recall the number of homes he owns by attacking critics who have sought to highlight McCain’s failure. He opened the segment by asking, “Well, instead of slamming McCain, is Obama really bashing the American Dream?”

Dude, you’re on the side that keeps bashing the American Dream, with your “elitist” slurs and attacks on Obama’s education. And I don’t know about you, but the guy raised by a single mother who attended school on a scholarship is more representative of the American Dream to me than the one who dumped his wife for a wealthy heiress. But I guess it depends on what you mean by “dream.”

I’ve always been amazed at the chutzpah of conservatives to attack their opponents for being what they themselves are to the 100th degree. Look, we aren’t voting for dog catcher here. This is the president of the United States. If he isn’t smarter, better looking, better educated, more well traveled, more experienced, wealthier and better connected than me, why the heck would I want him in the highest office of the land? Average Joe cannot do this job. It takes someone spectacular.

Come on, people. This stupidity has got to stop.
