We Deserve Better

The faux outrage over Barack Obama's "lipstick on a pig" comment is evidence of the dire state of our political discourse. Heaven forbid an American politician use a well-worn cliche in a public venue.  No one with two brain cell to rub together believes that Obama meant to disparage Sarah Palin or anyone else with that column, yet the chattering class is abuzz with the insinuation. 

Barack Obama's biggest liability in this race is his insistence on holding an adult conversation with an American media and public that has proven itself to be disgustingly immature.
