Media Matters vs. David Brooks

This has to be the most ridiculous Media Matters post in quite some time:

Summary: On MSNBC, David Brooks asserted that “less educated” and “downscale” people “look at [Sen. Barack] Obama, and they don’t see anything,” adding: “And so, Obama’s problem is he doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who could go into an Applebee’s salad bar, and people think he fits in naturally there.” Applebee’s officials have confirmed to Media Matters that its restaurants do not have salad bars.

Must have been a slow-outrage day if this is all they’ve got.
