Per Tim Graham at newsbusters.org, young Luke Russert had this rather stupid thing to say on the Today Show this morning: ““You have to remember, the smartest kids in the state go there [UVA], so it’s leaning a little bit towards Obama.” Oh, mon petit ami. There are so many things that went wrong there, and I’m sure my Hokie husband would love to set you straight on all of them.
To his credit, Luke later issued an apology. Of sorts. He tries to explain away his condescension, but it doesn’t really ring true to me. But, if you go to the MSNBC link, you’ve got to read the comments! According to these “progressives,” smart people will vote for Obama. You got that? If you don’t agree with the lying, untruthful associate of terrorists, you are un-smart. Well, color me and my UMd degree stupid, ‘cuz we’re not buying that elitist line of BS. Yup, yup.
I guess there’s only one thing left to say: Luke Russert, welcome to the mainstream media! You’ll find lots of friends there.
