Blow Me

Oct. 3rd, 2010

Charles M. Blow has written a stunningly elitist (even for the New York Times) piece on the challenges facing democrats this fall.

"The unpleasant fact that these liberals rarely mention, and may not know, is that large swaths of the Democratic base, groups they need to vote in droves next month — blacks, Hispanics and young people — are far less civically literate than their conservative counterparts."

Not only is Blow so smug as to suggest that minorities are too ill-informed to understand the processes of American government, he goes further by declaring that liberal analysts who don't agree with him simply don't "know."
