An e-mailer reminds Rich Lowry that Jim Webb has made similar comments about social issues being a distraction from voters' economic anxieties. (Bill Clinton has made them too.) I'd recommended Webb as a vice presidential candidate who could reach out to Middle America.

What would be surprising is to hear Webb speak as condescendingly toward the white working class as Barack Obama.
