There’s nothing more edifying than hearing celebrities wax eloquent on what the Republican Party must do after the election loss to Barack Obama:
Sarah Jessica Parker, who hosted a $40,000 per person fundraiser for Obama, said she hadn’t heard from Obama personally: “But the American people have …” She loftily stated that Republicans should see “the reality of this country, the wonderful diverse group of Americans that now exist — that’s the voting bloc. But I don’t need to tell the Republicans that. I think it’s abundantly clear what happened on election night.”
Now there’s a woman who sees clearly. Of course Republicans hate minorities and women.
Jennifer Westfeldt, who campaigned for Obama in swing states and was at the DNC:
I’m so, so relieved. We had been campaigning in swing states with Obama surrogates and the races were so close. I was so panicked, I couldn’t sleep for a solid month just worrying about it. I think that [Republicans] have to do a lot of soul-searching and realize that they’re totally out of touch with America and the diversity of America. The fact that they have absolutely no relationship with women and minorities is shameful. They need to understand that it’s not just about rich white men. It just isn’t.
Couldn’t sleep for a month? That’s . . . impressive.
Designer Diane Von Furstenberg, who told shopper in her store in September: “Everyone here better be a Democrat; no Republicans!” blurted: “You have to understand, I’m a European who became American. What I love about America is the unity.”
Ah, yes, Obama the Unifier.
The nose-in-the-air condescension is so palpable you can almost see right up their noses to their brains.
If they had any.
