Even though Cokie Roberts knows that Obama's grandmother lives in Hawaii, he's still acting like an elitist snob for taking a vacation instead of some place common people go, like Myrtle Beach, SC. Hey, it's a party town. I think Obama should have Cokie make all his vacation plans from now on.
Roberts: ...going off this week I know his grandmother lives in Hawaii and I know Hawaii is a state, but it has the look of him going off to some sort of foreign, exotic place. He should be at Myrtle Beach and if he's going to take a vacation at this time. I just think this is not the time to do that.
We're all so happy that Cokie is a concern troll and hey, she knows Hawaii is a state and all. Wow, what a concession. It's so exotic, visiting your grandmother. Really, it's just more of the chattering class talking amongst themselves. Who cares where Obama goes on vacation except for the wanking elites? Are they bothered by the fact that McCain takes off every weekend and goes to one of his eight homes? Of course that's not elitist at all, is it, Cokie?
UPDATE: (Nicole) In addition to his elitist vacation spot, the McCain campaign and the RNC put out a mocking "Barack Obama's Hawaii Travel Guide" that, among other things, bashes Obama for attending a private school on scholarship there. Jon Perr has it.
