  1. so, i think this is hilarious on one hand.

    But you also have to realize that the Democrats are frequently incapable of turning off this disparaging snarkiness OUTSIDE of a comedy show and they come off as arrogant big-city jerks (insert a stronger word if you like). and that is what costs them elections each time.

    Ever hear the saying that Democrats elect wise-college professor types and Republicans do well with Frat-boy/Football captain types. Obama (Bill Clinton, etc) speaks in long complex nuanced sentences. Palin (Bush, and other Republicans) in comfortable speaking to 6 year olds. Speaks in simple sentences.

  2. There’s a reason you’re supposed to be at least 18 to vote. The hope is… well, MY hope is, that by the time you’ve reached that age, you’re able to understand longer, more complex, nuanced sentences. Does it not BOTHER you that Republicans have won the last couple of elections by speaking down to people and appealing to their basest instincts?

  3. Not to mention the fact that what these clips (and others like them) are trying to point out is that Republicans’ most popular catchphrases don’t even MEAN anything, and where they do have meaning, that meaning is intellectually insulting. But then, that makes my first point, doesn’t it? They don’t intend to appeal to people’s intellect.
