Oh, If This Had Been Bush, Part 1,327,922

Whoops. “Obama gaffe: President says billionaires should pay ‘Jew’ tax rate,” as spotted (complete with video) by the Daily Caller and Gateway Pundit:

“When you start saying, at a time when the top one-tenth of one percent have seen their incomes go up four or five times over the last twenty years, and folks at the bottom have seen their incomes decline, and your response is that you want poor folks to pay more — give me a break.

“If asking a billionaire to pay the same tax rate as a Jew — as a janitor — makes me a warrior for the working class, I wear that as a badge of honor.”

“It’s a mistake all of us make, right? It’s just a little more compelling when it comes from a guy who seems to have . . . issues, yeah, that’s it, issues with the Jews,” Bookwork Room adds. And as the Weasel Zippers note, “Never mind the Jeremiah Wright-like gaffe, what kind of example is the President of the United States setting with phrases like “bad crazy?”

“Bad crazy” sums up the Obama Era rather well, come to think of it.

And while Woody Allen likely still thinks that Obama should remain dictator for life, Alvy Singer, his earlier, funnier alter-ego would be feeling just a mite paranoid right now — and understandably so — proving that even when it comes to the Woodman, Bill Whittle’s Lou Grant Effect remains inviolable.
