Mr. Thin-Skinned Petty-Pants really knows how to hold a grudge!

By Chrissy the Hyphenated

After a Dec 11, 2006, press conference, then-Senator Obama sought out New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd to complain about a comment she had made about him in her October 21, 2006 column (SEVEN WEEKS earlier).

In paragraph TWELVE of the FOURTEEN paragraph column, she wrote:

He’s intriguingly imperfect: His ears stick out, he smokes, and he’s written about wrestling with pot, booze and ”maybe a little blow” as a young man.

He told her he did not like people talking about his ears.

Dowd said, “We’re trying to toughen you up.”

Clearly, it didn’t work.

Several pundits, including one at MSNBC called Obama’s remark to Dowd a “rookie mistake.”

Obama apologists whined that he’d been KIDDING, wah wah.

Yeah, right. Pretending to be kidding is how people politely tell other people to go to hell. Nobody is fooled except the fools who support Obama.

What stands out for me is that way back in 2006, Obama was called out for a “rookie” mistake … and here he is, in his third year in the highest office in the land, making the same mistake.

But then … his VP doesn’t seem to know that Loose Lips Sink Ships … and he’s been in high public office for ages.
