The sharp tongues of the progressive elites

Sonia Sotomayor, US Supreme Court Nominee
“I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.”

David Axelrod, Obama’s chief political strategist and PR guru
Question: Were you consulted on the name for the Obama dog?
“One was Miss California.”

Joe Klein, journalist
Commenting about paraplegic commentator, Charles Krauthammer:
“There's something tragic about him...His work would have a lot more nuance if he were able to see the situations he's writing about.”

President Obama
While discussing his bowling skills on late night TV:
“It's like -- it was like Special Olympics, or something.”

Some folks think the left is somehow different, but I think only the lack of outrage from the media prevents the labels from sticking. Otherwise, they’d be intolerant, insensitive racists. Note that the first three comments were clearly leveled at enemies. At least Obama wasn’t on the attack.

Still, he let slip his true inner feelings. That comment came from somewhere.
Proof positive there is a double standard when it comes to political correctness.
