Because Obama is the elitist, my friends!


Really? Because Obama actually worked hard to become a senator? Because he didn't have a famous father and marry into mega-money? Because he knows how many houses he has?

Obama is the elitist... Ohhhhh, because he's educated and eats weird lettuce? And McCain almost failing out of the Annapolis Naval Academy proves he isn't?

Haven't we had enough of incompetent C students with whom we are supposed to want to have a beer? Aren't we talking about a leader who should be competent enough to RUN A COUNTRY? Don't we want someone who actually is an elite in the true sense of the word?:
the choice or best of anything considered collectively, as of a group or class of persons.
Kevin Hayden of American Street asks the best question ever about McCain:

“what does he know and how long did he remember it?”

Update: Globe and Mail:
Both the McCains and the Obamas are vastly richer than most voters. But whether or not the "houses" question has legs, it is likely to undercut Mr. McCain's efforts, which have been quite successful up till now, to portray Mr. Obama as elitist and out of touch.

After all, the Illinois senator may eat arugula and sip Black Forest Berry Honest Tea and read books by authors Mr. McCain has never heard of, but at least he knows where he lives.
