''There are a lot of people who have been in Washington longer than me, who have better connections and go to the right dinner parties and know how to talk the Washington talk,'' Obama said. ''There are those who tout their experience working the system in Washington, but the problem is that the system in Washington isn't working for us and hasn't for a long time.''
Barack Obama has to come up with a new theme. This Washington outsider thing doesn't hold up to close inspection. Something tells me this guy knows how to get to the right dinner parties to talk the Washington talk.
After all, if he continues praising the supposed virtues of being a Washington outsider, he's gonna start to remind us of a dear old friend he'd rather not be associated with, methinks.
Just a suggestion from one Illinoian to another, Barack. Peace.
