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.
