Humanitarian Crisis: Northern Plains without soap, cologne, deodorant, perfume...

Katie Couric On Her Contract, CBS, and Love of the Campaign Trail - The Daily Beast

This is my favorite line from Howard Kurtz' love letter to Katie Couric:

"That’s why Couric has spent recent weeks in Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston and New Brunswick, New Jersey. She is touring what she calls 'this great unwashed middle of the country' in an effort to divine the mood of the midterms."

Now, I have to wonder if she considers Chicago "the great unwashed middle," or if she's looking just beyond it toward the bleak moonscape on which our filthy Northern Plains children stand by wagon rut trails, calling out "Baksheesh!" to passers by.

For those of you on the left, seriously, this is where Tea Parties get started. When you look down your snout at people long enough, they react. The American left has become all noblesse and no oblige.

Yep you can hear the sound of her shooting herself in the foot. It really bugs the people on both coasts that the Midwest, the Great Plains, and the South gets to vote. Yet if you look at where most of the creative people in this country come from it would be from those places.

Keith - you would think with all the judge shopping deals to circumvent elections and legislation, they would just let us have our silly franchise without a second thought.

Come to think of it...

Somewhat related to this is the broad "it's affecting the entire country" statement from MSM, when it's really just happening in D.C., Boston, and New York. "Oh most of the nation has been crippled by a terrible blizzard." No, as it turns out, it's the East Coast. Texas is fine. Florida is fine. Washington State is okay. Even California is unaffected. You guys up there in the Northern Plains are used to that kind of weather so you probably weren't crippled. (Actually they probably wouldn't use the word "crippled" because it's not P.C., but you catch my drift.) Ack!

The great "unwashed" in the middle of the country?

Well, even if it doesn't apply elsewhere, it must apply in SD. After all, everyone know that only cowboys and Indians live there. And cowboys aren't known for taking a bath very often...

I haven't seen her in a while. Didn't she join one of those "fly-over" networks?

Livin' down har in Texass, we are totly unimpurtant cuz we cain't talk or write right. Since weeze such dum cluck's we artent be allowed to vote by them thar 'telligence folks what live on the Easts and Wests coasts. Matter fakt, we shoulda' let them send fok in to tell us howin' to do everthing.

Kati is just another elitist that looks down her nose at those that disagree with her liberal ideas. Pray that she learns her ideas are not the only ones.
