Broder/Snowe ’12!


I’m not sure which of the many obviously idiotic arguments in the latest demonstration of utter cluelessness by Mark Penn, Union Buster (TM) is the very dumbest. But I think I’m going to have to go with his assertion that the socially liberal/fiscally conservative view is underrepresented in American politics. How a pollster who seems not to know anything about public opinion or the structure of American political institutions manages to get one extremely high-paying gig after another is an even better example of the consultant racket than Bob Shrum.

The most amazing thing about Penn’s performance as he torpedoed the Clinton campaign is that his strategy of relentlessly insulting people’s intelligence didn’t seem to be pure spin — to a large extent, he seemed to believe his own bullshit.
