In the land of progressive inteh-LEK-chew-als, it’s the Tea Party folks who are crude rubes. Dressing up in colonial costumes is corn pone and low brow. Conservatives and Fox News viewers are uncouth and uneducated.
But we’re not the ones snickering like Beavis and Butthead at photos of politicians eating corn dogs at state fairs.
No, that’s left to left-wing Berkeley sophisticates like prog blogger king Markos Moulitsas, who apparently collects GOP corn dog-eating images for his amusement and the titillation of his readers:
It goes on. And on. And on, with the de riguer gay rumor-mongering tossed in:
In complaining about “TMI (too much information) in Ames,” Kos confesses that “really, I’d shoot myself if I came across a photo of Newt Gingrich performing fellatio on a corn dog.”
Really, we have a feeling he’d drool rather gleefully as he added said image to his little blog photo album.
This all follows on the heels of London Telegraph editor Toby Harnden snarking about Bachmann chomping the “foot-long hot dog” with “gusto.”
Because, you know, re-printing candid photos of people with corn dogs is apparently so much more cultivated and distingué than actually digesting them. Heaven forfend.
From a Twitter follower: Democrats make fun of people eating corn dogs and defend people who tweet their weiners.
