"Now is the winter of our discontentIt seems that the gang that can't shoot straight -- the Obama campaign -- has now also turned tone-deaf. Last Friday, in addition to hijacking Air Force One to go on a campaign junket thinly veiled as official business (a factory tour and speechifying sandwiched between six fundraisers), they also are going to allow the peasants a pair o' seats at their table at an upcoming NY fundraiser "hosted" by Sara Jessica "Why the long Face" Parker and Anna "I'm always in Vogue" Wintour.

It's a goodly part of the ad in playing in the background with those oh so uncomfortable numbers up close and personal.
How bad was this?
Even Juan Williams on Fox's Chris Matthews Sunday show gets it:
I won't dwell on the annoying accent and arrogance of Wintour as she recounts her good fortune at meeting women like Parker and "Mee-Shell Obah-Ma" but I truly wonder about a campaign whose dissonance includes bashing Romney as a One-Percenter while simultaneously seekign to raise funds with this bitch and Ferris Beuller's wife.
If any of you go, be sure to give us a report on the proceedings. I mean, we're all just waiting on pins and needles out here in flyover country..
