I found it amusing that Mr. Man of the People got a little testy when his breakfast was interrupted by yet another reporter.
As Sen. Hillary Clinton was preparing to campaign here today, Sen. Barack Obama was meeting with voters at a diner and apparently pretty hungry.
"Why can't I just eat my waffle?" he said, when asked a foreign policy question by a reporter at the Glider Diner.
On the day before the Pennsylvania primary, Obama is campaigning in the Philadelphia and Pittsburgh areas, avoiding the so-called "T" section of the state dominated by rural and conservative voters.
It was a stupid question, of course. If Senator Obama had wanted to enjoy his waffle in peace, he would have had it at the hotel with his entourage. But he wanted the photo op in a diner (read: blue collar potential voters).
Jeromy Brown has tried to argue that no real Democrats are offended by Obama's elitist remarks. But what Jeromy doesn't take into account is that Obama's gaffes are being observed by all voters, not just Democrats, and I doubt most people, particularly religious people or gun owners, thought the remark was harmless.
