John Kerry Calls Voters Dumb, Unfocused, and Hypocritical

Yeah, that's real smart. Kerry is not up for re-election in 2010, but he sure ain't helping his fellow Democrats with his smarmy "we know best" attitude. A poster child for everything that is wrong with Washington DC, and the Democrats:

Kerry ...was asked if he's ever seen such anger with Washington, in part inspired by the Tea Party movement named after the Boston Tea Party in his home state.

... the 26-year Washington veteran said yes, citing the turbulent 1960s and the Watergate era. "Yes, I have seen it," he said, but "I think this is less focused."

It wasn't a slam at the Tea Party movement and those upset at Washington as much as a frustration he feels that Congress and the president aren't getting the credit he thinks they deserve for pulling the country out of a second depression.

"I think there's a comprehension gap," said Kerry...

Oh, so that's it! It's not the fact that unemployment is still around 10%, or that the government is spending our hard-earned cash on whacked-out liberal priorities with no way to pay for it, or that the treasury is printing money like it's going out of style, or that Obama continually names one radical appointee after another, or that his administration seems to be incompetent at everything from reading immigration law to capping a fuel spill, or that Obama and the State Department have abandoned traditional allies in order to support terrorists, mad mullahs, and Russian despots.

No, it has nothing to do with that at all. We're angry because we are stupid and inconsiderate! Which makes us....wait for it....

But he said that the D.C.-directed attacks are hypocritical, since many of those attacking Washington spending presumably want to keep their Social Security and Medicare and want Washington to play a big role in the Gulf Oil cleanup. "There's a huge contradiction on a daily basis," he said.

But our Brilliant Brahmin has the answer for us plebes:

Maybe, he concluded, the Democrats should change their communications strategy "to better sell what we've done."

He sounds just like Barack Obama, who - looking at a 60% disapproval of his health care reforms - answered, with a sigh, that he just hasn't explained it well enough to us simpletons, and guesses he'll just have to try again, speaking slower and using bigger words....

The two of them, when out of a job in 2012, can commiserate together about how ungrateful their subjects were, and how unkind they were to their beknighted and enlightened rulers....
