Seeking to further push the notion that Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, is an out-of-touch empty-headed celebrity, the Republican National Committee this morning launched a new interactive website —
– where users can guess whether Obama or a member of the glitterati uttered a particular quote.
For instance: "You have only a short period of time in your life to make your mark, and I’m there now."
Was that said by Obama, Madonna, David Beckham or George Clooney?
Or: "Anybody gone into Whole Foods lately and see what they charge for arugula?" (Choice: Obama; Cameron Diaz; Jessica Biel; Matt Damon.)
We had our own quiz on this subject yesterday, though we were trying to make a slightly different point.
