My favorite was the reference to those poor, poor people who got “sucked into a subprime mortgage.” I used to work in a building that had a bank on the ground floor — those giant vacuum tubes were indeed quite difficult to dodge.
Also, she’s going to raise the minimum wage to $9.50/hour so that anyone who wants to work can lift themselves out of poverty . . .
. . . until the bean-counting eggheads redefine poverty, of course, since there’s always a bottom quartile (or wherever the line is drawn these days).
But hey — she knows how to fix the economy, right?
P.S. I noticed in Obama’s speech that he was referring to the “Bush-McCain” tax cuts, the “Bush-McCain” war, etc. I love it when politicians do that, tying the guy they’re trying to attack with someone unpopular or controversial… “Dole-Gingrich,” “Kerry-Kennedy,” “Donnelly-Pelosi,” etc. I wonder if we’re going to start hearing the phrase “Bush-Cheney-McCain”? If you’re trying to smear McCain with guilt-by-association with the current administration, it seems a shame to leave ol’ trigger-happy Dick out of the picture. After all, his approval ratings are, like, negative numbers at this point, aren’t they?
