Perhaps Katie Couric is struggling because she holds 90% of her potential audience in disdain, calling them “the great unwashed middle of the country.”
And her idea of “the great unwashed middle of the country” consists of: liberal blue city metropolis Chicago, liberal blue city Philadelphia, liberal blue city Boston and very liberal blue college town New Brunswick, New Jersey.
Now, in fairness, I think she means “middle of the country” to mean maybe moderate voters. Strange, though, she seeks such voters only in bright blue Democratic bastions.
“Unwashed”? Liberal voters who vote straight-ticket Democrat are, what? Washed and elegant?
