Obama’s gargantuan snobbery on full display.
The whole “He’s not a licensed plumber!” non sequitur is really fantastic. So, if you happen to be standing in front of Obama when he publicly reveals his socialism, what does the media do? Demands to see your papers. That’s just delicious, is what that is.
One Last Update:
Context does matter.
CLARIFICATION: Over at Hot Air, they observe that this video is cut to take Obama’s words out of context. The full quote is “He’s trying to suggest that a plumber is the guy he’s fighting for.” Allahpundit notes, “They’re laughing at McCain for claiming to be a friend of the middle class, not at Wurzelbacher for being middle class” — which in context seems like a reasonable interpretation. So whatever issues you have with the Obama campaign and how they’re handling Joe the Plumber, this video is a bit unfair to Obama.
None of which takes away from Treacher’s point about demands to see papers.
