On ABC this morning there was a panel discussion where George Stephanopoulos asked the panel if the President should distance himself from his million-dollar donor, Bill Maher. All the learned journalists talked about how his comments were playing into the hands of the Republican’s who were attempting to paint the Democrats as out of touch with the average American, and were elitist snobs.
Then Katrina vanden Heuvel said something in passing that caused me to question who is really out of touch with Americans. She said this country has “inequality akin to Egypt.” Really? Has she ever been to Egypt?
