GOP Mouthpiece Ridicules Obama's Trip To Visit 'Grandma'

Republican 'strategist' Brad Blakeman has just employed the strategy of how to lose in a landslide.

This poor excuse for a pundit actually defended Sarah Palin's $150,000 fashion spree by comparing it to a real 'outrage,' Barack Obama's flying off to see his seriously ill grandmother.

One wonders if the GOP is just trying to get the lion's share of the mean-spirited vote.

Blakeman griped to MSNBC's David Schuster that Senator Obama was,
...taking a 767 campaign plane to go visit Grandma.

Forget about the energy that is wasted, what about the hundreds of thousands of dollars to take a private trip when this guy should be humping his bags on a commercial plane or taking a smaller plane. Taking a 767 of campaign money from people who could least afford it is more of an outrage in my opinion.
With co-horts like that, if I were a Republican I would be almost embarrassed to admit it.

Here is the video, along with commentary by Keith Olbermann and Sam Seder, as showcased on Countdown.
