Obama’s Elitism

One of the oddest things the Republicans are trying to pin on Obama is his supposed "elitism".

I really don’t understand it.  I mean, yes, Obama went to Harvard Law School and was the editor of the prestigious Harvard Law Review.

This is… what… bad?

Are we back to this stupid old "I want my President to be a regular Joe that I can have a beer with" bullshit? 

Yeah.  Obama sucks at bowling.  Can’t have that in a president, can we?

Listen, we tried giving the presidency to wanna-have-a-beer-with Bush (who, by the way, went to Yale for crying out loud).  Didn’t exactly make a good President, huh?

But honestly — it’s pretty hard to pin on Obama.  He was exactly born with a silver spoon in his mouth.  What he made out of himself, he did it himself

And besides, if anyone deserves that elitist rap, it’s the McCain clan.  Just another blue collar couple like you and me:

Cindy McCain recently gave a rare private interview to CNN in which she disclosed her opinions on transportation in Arizona, her home state. The McCain’s have tried to distance themselves from elitism, but apparently Mrs. McCain believes that the only way to get around is by “small private plane.”

Here’s the video:

Now, I don’t know how many of you readers out there are from, or have been to, Arizona.  But I envision it as kind of easy to get around.  Lots of open space. 

In fact, as this documentary film shows, you can leave a baby in the middle of a typical Arizona road, and he chances are pretty good he won’t get crushed due to heavy traffic:

Now, if Cindy McCain thinks the only way to get around Arizona is by small private plane — well, that’s elitism, my friends.
