Michelle Obama: If You Disagree with Barack, You're Probably Confused

Michelle Obama spoke with the Tom Joyner Morning Show about the things people can do to get out the vote for her husband, and actually offered a rather insulting portrait of those who are undecided -- as well as inaccurately portraying the race as between grassroots Democrats and a handful of rich Republicans. Check out the audio clip:

The most damning passage:

"All of us know that one person in our lives -- that one knucklehead nephew that's not registered to vote. That one neighbor who's not really paying attention. That one coworker who's confused about how Barack's tax plan will benefit that individual. Those are going to be the conversations that make the difference. And in this election, we're gonna be making a choice about how we want our democracy run. You know, do we want our president selected by people rolling their sleeves up, knocking on doors, or are we gonna hand it over to a couple of people who write big checks?"

So in reality, if you disagree with the president, you're just "confused about how Barack's tax plan will benefit" you, and it's up to your friendly neighborhood Democrat coworker to enlighten you. It's like she lives in a world where reasonable people couldn't possibly disagree with her husband's approach to government -- no, they're just knuckleheads. Right.

And, remind me -- who's been hosted by celebrity after celebrity after celebrity at glitzy, A-list fundraisers? Door knocking, indeed.
