THE PLANK JUNE 3, 2008
On MSNBC today, David Brooks lamented Barack Obama's greatest shortcoming:
Obama’s problem is he doesn’t seem like the kind of guy who can go into
an Applebee’s salad bar and people think he fits in naturally there.
This would be a more lamentable shortcoming, of course, if Applebee's actually had a salad bar. As Steve Benen notes, it doesn't.
