Katie Couric: "..“This Great Unwashed Middle Of The Country”

CBS talking head Katie Couric unwittingly reveals just how much of a bubble she lives in via this embarrassingly servile puff piece by the Daily Beast's Howard Kurz.

As Couric approaches the end of her multi-million dollar contract with CBS news, she's decided to go out on the road because, as she says, “It’s great for me to get out of the chair and into the world. I started out as a reporter, and I still enjoy reporting.”

So she's touring what she calls “this great unwashed middle of the country” to get a feel for the mood in the midterms.“It’s fun to feel like you have connections with viewers out there. Sitting in the studio, you can feel pretty insulated.”

Oh and the 'middle of the country' according to Couric? Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston and New Brunswick, New Jersey!

That will certainly provide a vast contrast to Manhattan, won't it?

And listen to this wisdom that she's gleaned from her travels!

“American voters are slightly schizophrenic—they want compromise, and yet some of them are ideologically so fixated to one point of view… There are a lot of moderate Americans who are just fed up with negative campaign ads, fed up with the vitriol, fed up with the paralysis.”

I'm sure that insight and the ability to read a teleprompter is worth $15 mil a year to CBS.

It's a pity Ms. Couric doesn't get out more, expose herself to a slightly more representative group of what she refers to as the 'great unwashed middle'. She'd find out that what her fellow Americans are really fed up with is being taxed to death, having Big Government on their backs, and watching as Barack Obama and his cronies destroy America's prosperity, disrespect its institutions and choke its future by their insane spending and irresponsible behavior.

And she'd find, to her shock and surprise that they're also rather tired of being patronized and lied to by Leftist media shills like Couric.

Of course, that sort of knowledge would likely be quite uncomfortable for her to process, let alone report on.

"...they want compromise..." Actually in this paragraph Ms. Couric nails it. She's right voters do want compromise. This is why they want Obamacare repealed. Obamacare is the exact opposite of compromise. It was rammed down the throats of voters who did not want it and it did not have the support of any Republicans.

If Democrats really were interested in reforming healthcare, they could have crafted a bill that had at least some support of Republicans. Picking off enough Republicans to avoid a filibuster had never been hard for them before. This bill was so bad they couldn't even do that!!

In order to get "compromise" Democrats and their shills like Ms. Couric should look in the mirror!!
