Wal-Mart makes Obama ‘Scream’

Sen. Barack Obama, Democratic presidential candidate, has lost the Pennsylvania primary to his rival, Sen. Hillary Clinton, after Obama called certain red-state voters “bitter” to a San Francisco audience. What can Obama do to mend relations with this demographic group? As he explains to Susannah, Bob has some ideas — which include visiting a certain blue-state nemesis — in the latest episode of “Running Gags”!

    The irony is that Obama is being nailed on something he was objectively right about. (If anything, he was too nice about “bitter” red-state types.) Meanwhile, the thing that should ruin his career, affilitation with the Weather Underground, are going completely un-noticed. (If that is not evidence of the stupidity of the American voter, damned if I know what it is.)

    Dom-never expected to be rooting for a Clinton.

    Hey all,

    Martin, how are you?

    Dom makes a good point. Hillary uses the clinton pandering playbook. Obama is trying to change that theory of politics and maybe get something done. If he upset some bloc of voters, sorry but, his view of politics could be just what we need. Really folks, Hillary or Obama or McCain (what me worry?), will they do anything? That should be the way to select. (Vote for Alfred E. Neuman!).

    In panel #2, you make a point of Obama’s lack of appeal to working-class voters … but times have changed and the expression no longer means what it used to … Exactly who is a working-class voter?

    Uhmm, a politician who’s capable of seeing through many lenses, is almost always on target (if not in Walmart ; ) –and is pretty honest and genuine! Is he refreshing or alarming? I’d go for the former….
