FROM THE "HOLY SHYTE!" DEPARTMENT:
Lost in the angst over Scott Brown's victory, is this small bit of comfort ... unless of course you're black, brown, a woman, or just not that good looking ... from the brain trust that gathered yesterday on MSNBC's Morning Joe:
Donny Deutsch got the ball rolling, suggesting that voters may be "going back to basics" after electing an African-American president and seeing "the female candidates and whatnot." Scott Brown, Deutsch added, "looks like the traditional view of a candidate," which may bring a "visceral comfort" to voters
Mike Barnicle found value in the observation, saying that "there's something to it."
The Wall Street Journal's Peggy Noonan added that Brown is "a regular guy" who "looks like an American."
WTF? Are all of these melonheads implying that America wants only good-looking white guys who pose nude to be their candidates? And that Mr. Obama doesn't "look like an American?" These muttonjaws get paid to claim idiocies like this on cable teevee?
