Taylor Marsh on Obama-"Deep and Dumb"

LATEST FROM IOWA: Obama Turns to Sexism in Final Push

In what is meant to be a closer for his candidacy, Barack Obama went deep.... and dumb. You know, like Axelrod blaming Clinton for Bhutto's assassination dumb. Unless, of course, you think playing the sexism card is a way to run for president in the 21st century.

Barack Obama insists his experiences traveling and having family living overseas brings more to the table than, let's say, the job of a former first lady.

"It's that experience, that understanding, not just of what world leaders I went and talked to in the ambassadors house I had tea with, but understanding the lives of the people like my grandmother who lives in a tiny hut in Africa," Obama, D-Ill., told a crowd of would-be voters in Coralville, Iowa, on Friday.

Obama's Cup of Tea

Excuse me?

Mr. Obama is running against the first viable female candidate for president in U.S. history, a fellow Democrat who also happened to be first lady, and what does he say? That all Clinton's been doing for the last four decades, the only experience she really has is having tea with dignitaries. After all, we have to keep the little woman busy, now don't we. Never mind that this woman has been serving this country for years, has traveled around the world giving speeches and impacting the lives of women, including in China, you know, going to places Barack has only read about in books, that is when he wasn't voting "present" in the Illinois state senate, or ducking votes in the U.S. Senate.
