?A Nation of Dodos?

Quote:
Liberals turn against the American public.

On the old Mary Tyler Moore Show, pompous anchorman Ted Baxter once ran for the Minneapolis City Council. After his not-unexpected drubbing, he gave a concession speech in which he proclaimed, ?The voters have spoken, and if that?s what they want ? the hell with them.?

With a Democratic electoral debacle looking more and more likely this fall, Democrats and their apologists in the mainstream media appear ready to steal a page from the Baxter playbook.

For a long time, the media assumed that the problem was the Obama administration?s inability to communicate its accomplishments. If only the president could better explain all the wonderful things that he has done for us, the voters would come around. But as the president has continued to give speech after speech touting his policies, voters have remained unmoved. Indeed, according to the latest Gallup poll, Americans oppose the stimulus package by 52 percent to 43 percent, the auto bailout by 56 percent to 43 percent, the health-care bill by 56 percent to 39 percent, and the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) by 61 percent to 37 percent.
