Your media elites at work.

1) Where do they FIND these people?

2) Is there a way that I can get paid an insane amount of money for being a completely empty-headed moron?

Media Matters:

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.

Or maybe Obama is just too smart to go to Applebee's. Personally, I refuse to go into an Applebee's ever again - because at several locations, over the course of 26 years and over a spread of about 2,000 miles, every Applebee's I have ever eaten in has had the worst service of any chain restaurant, ever.

But maybe if they had a salad bar, one could serve one's self, and the service wouldn't matter, and then maybe Obama could feel comfortable there.

But I still wouldn't go, because the food would still be mostly blah.
