Requiescant In Pace

Question of the Night: In yesterday's New York Times columnist David Brooks wrote the following:

We got to know Barack and Michelle Obama, two tall, thin, rich, beautiful people who don’t perspire, but who nonetheless feel compassion for their squatter and smellier fellow citizens.

Did Brooks call the Obamas "uppity"?

In my opinion, he did and I just sent a letter to the NYT telling them so.

Brooks is the Times token conservative and boy does he stink. Whose rich? McCain and his wife by birth, while Obama grew up poorer financially than most Americans.

Good for you for that letter. And as usual, gorgeous photo.

This is a lovely statue. The weathering adds to her appeal.

What's that saying, "You can't be too rich or too thin!"
Well how about "You can be too old or too inexperienced!"

Excellent photo.

Brooks is an idiot. He should know that middle class people CANNOT run for office in this country.
