2) Is there a way that I can get paid an insane amount of money for being a completely empty-headed moron?
Brooks thinks Obama wouldn't seem to "fit in naturally" at an Applebee's salad bar -- maybe because Applebee's doesn't have them
Summary: On MSNBC, David Brooks asserted that "less educated" and "downscale" people "look at [Sen. Barack] Obama, and they don't see anything," adding: "And so, Obama's problem is he doesn't seem like the kind of guy who could go into an Applebee's salad bar, and people think he fits in naturally there." Applebee's officials have confirmed to Media Matters that its restaurants do not have salad bars.
And I just want to point out that - in addition to the total embarrassment detailed above, this is ANOTHER example of the fact that our pundit class has become TOTAL SHIT.
"Is he the kind of guy who could go into Applebee's"?
Honestly - can it GET any more vacuous and imbecilic than THAT?
Applebee's - holy crap.
