Dennis Miller works himself into a fine lather over Barack Obama’s dismissive attitude towards Tea Party protests on last night’s O’Reilly Factor. In a 2-minute rant, Miller notes that Obama seems more concerned with the feelings of pigs than with some American voters:
Memo to Miller: Good rant, but I think Tea Party attendees would prefer not to be called “Tea Bag People.” That’s been the Rachel Maddow/Anderson Cooper meme.
As for growing “rhino skin,” I know exactly what Miller means. Free-market conservatives get plenty of derision from mainstream media, and portrayals of conservatives in popular media range from idiots to villains. I think Obama and the Left want to produce RINO skin, but we’ll see who’s more successful in the next couple of years.
