Another candidate for dumbest comment ever (updated)

ABC's Cokie Roberts discussing Obama's vacation plans:
...and going off this week to a vacation in Hawaii does not make any sense whatsoever. I know his grandmother lives in Hawaii and I know Hawaii is a state, but it has the look of him going off to some sort of foreign, exotic place. He should be in Myrtle Beach, and, you know, if he's going to take a vacation at this time.
Give me a break. There's so much dumb in that short little comment that it's hard to know where to start. He grew up there and went to visit his grandmother and you're going to rip him for that? Seriously? Because he should have thought how visiting his family should play with voters?

And isn't Hawaii like a traditional American vacation? It's not like he's going to surf in Lebanon or something. Hmm, I just think the beaches in South Carolina have fewer brown people. You know, connect to real Americans instead of those fake states way out there.

"I know Hawaii is a state." Really, brilliant. It's too bad your command of analyzing politics can't quite match your grasp of geography. Ugh. I can't wait for this election to be over so I can stop being outraged at this idiocy on display.

You can see her ABC performance here and her repeat the comments on NPR's Morning Edition here where she said "He makes such a point of being the boy from Kansas and Kenya." Boy? That's, umm, probably not a good choice of words, Cokie. And when did he ever say he was from Kenya or even Kansas for that matter? It's hilarious to me to watch these videos and know that she was actually trying to make a serious point.

You really think that the idiocy will cease after the election? You have more faith then I do, brother.

No, but at least by then I won't have to worry about it affecting the chances Obama gets elected.
