New York Times: When Democrats Lose, We’ll Always Blame the Stupid Voters

Posted on | October 6, 2010 | 7 Comments

Evidently, they’re expecting a huge Republican tsunami Nov. 2, and so they assigned Matt Bai to prepare the pre-emptive excuse:

These voters did not hate politicians. They simply saw both parties, along with the media and big business, as symptoms of the larger societal ailment. And this underlying perception, that politicians in Washington conduct themselves just as childishly and with the same lack of accountability as the kids throwing chicken casserole in the lunchroom, may well be the principal emotion behind the electorate’s propensity to vote out whoever holds power.

Excuse me if I didn’t notice when the New York Times interpreted the GOP’s losses in 2006 and 2008 as anything other than a wholesale repudiation of conservative Republicanism.

Bryan Preston at Pajamas Media has a round-up of election reports in which chicken casserole doesn’t get mentioned at all.

Darn those silly voters!

    The various headline, columns and editorials proclaiming how stupid The People are should be collected, archived and shown to the public repeatedly over the next two years.
