Katie Couric Goes Amid the Great Unwashed
Posted by Dave Blount at October 26, 2010 11:57 AM
To think I always saw Katie Cupcake as a typically insolated left-wing ruling class snob. It turns out, she enjoys descending from her Manhattan castle to nurture an intimate rapport with the slobs in the Heartland — which according to her consists of places like Boston.
Rick Kaplan, her executive producer, says that "when she's on the road — in Iraq with David Petraeus — she has a great way with people. People like her and she likes them. There are anchors who consider being on the road a pain in the butt. She really looks for opportunities to feel the earth and touch people."
That's why Couric has spent recent weeks in Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston and New Brunswick, New Jersey. She is touring what she calls "this great unwashed middle of the country" in an effort to divine the mood of the midterms.
On behalf of the great unwashed, I would like to express humble gratitude to Miss Couric for deigning to live in the same country as Americans.
Katie's adventures among the peasantry have given her profound insight into our minds.
What she has learned on her latest excursions is that "American voters are slightly schizophrenic — they want compromise, and yet some of them are ideologically so fixated to one point of view."
Miss Cupcake has discovered that the "great unwashed" are "schizophrenic." Yet she hasn't yet figured out why nobody watches CBS News anymore.
