Here’s the first miracle about bitter-gate: That we know about it at all. Mayhill Fowler, the “citizen journalist” (her term), who broke the story on the Huffington Post, almost didn’t. She said in an interview on cable (CNN, I think) that she had originally written another story. But Obama’s San Fran condescension “bothered” her. She didn’t want to “bring down [Obama’s] campaign,” but in the end she wrote the story.
Miracle II: That the remarks bothered her. I don’t know anything about Mayhill Fowler, but most journalists, sharing Obama’s low regard for the non-latte set, would not have been bothered. Do you ever get the feeling that there are Obama gaffes out there that we don’t know about?
