Live By The "not Folksy Enough" Charge, Die By...


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.
