If you look up "out of touch" in the dictionary...

It used to be that the "liberal media" would gleefully make fun of an "out of touch" Republican politician by replaying over and over video of him marveling at something commonplace like a supermarket barcode reader. Today, such examples seem quaint.

Tony Snow, the White House Press Secretary, actually compared Bush's gay marriage ban with ‘Civil Rights’ legislation.

I miss the good old days when I could chuckle at Republicans who were so sheltered that they didn't do their own grocery shopping. But this latest nonsense is so absurd that it's not even close to funny.
