Town hall voter: "I know Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae"

Remember the town hall questioner Oliver Clark, who John McCain said may not have heard of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac before the economic crisis? Well, turns out the senator was wrong, and Oliver wanted people to know:

"Well Senator, I actually did. I like to think of myself as a fairly intelligent person. I have a bachelor degree in Political Science from Tennessee State, so I try to keep myself up to date with current affairs. I have a Master degree in Legal Studies from Southern Illinois University, a few years in law school, and I am currently pursuing a Master in Public Administration from the University of Memphis.

In defense of the Senator from Arizona I would say he is an older guy, and may have made an underestimation of my age. Honest mistake. However, it could be because I am a young African-American male. Whatever the case may be it was somewhat condescending regardless of my age to make an assumption regarding whether I was knowledgeable about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac."

I too felt it was a condescending remark.
