McCain-Palin explains elitism

The McCain-Palin ticket finally tells us who is elite and it's not the rich, erudite, ivy-leaguers most have been assuming they mean:

According to Sarah Palin the elitists are "anyone who thinks they're better than anyone else" and according to McCain the elitists are those "who think they can dictate what they believe to America instead of letting Americans decide for themselves - at least that's what they told Brian Williams.

In other words, they both admitted that their fundamentalist Christian base, who insist laws be based on their bible and that they are morally superior because they are "Christian" are the ultimate elitists. You know, people like this lovely "good = Christian" woman

I think you should send this post to the McCain campaign.

I find it very disturbing that McCain goes with Palin to do her interviews. I find it very paternalistic. It seemed like McCain was correcting Palin when she said that geography has nothing to do with one's elitism, since McCain replied saying that most elitists live in Washington, D.C. and New York City. I wonder if McCain thinks the 12,000 homeless people in D.C. are elitists. Or is McCain an elitist for doing nothing about it?
