Hard to miss the dogwhistle here:
and later this exchange:
KENNEDY: You have the right to believe every one of these things. You do. This is America. I don’t mean any disrespect, but I don’t know whether to call you professor or comrade.
OMAROVA: I’m not a communist. I do not subscribe to that ideology. I could not choose where I was born…
So the real question is this: Does the Oxford-UK educated Sen. Kennedy ever get tired of playing the stupid hick for the folks back home in Possum Hollar?
