Palin and McCain Define “The Elites”

The question: Who is a member of the elite?

The answer: A member of the elite is someone who:

  1. Thinks they’re better than anyone else.
  2. Lives in NYC and D.C. and attends cocktail parties in Georgetown.
  3. Dictates what they believe to America rather than letting Americans decide for themselves.

So, going by the above, I’m thinking you might be a member of the elite if:

  1. You shop at Neiman Marcus and Saks and charge the $150,000 to the folks who shop at J.C. Penney’s, Sears, Kohl’s, and Target.
  2. Sally Quinn considers you to be “an absolutely delightful dinner partner” on the Georgetown dinner party circuit.
  3. You want to dictate your own extreme far right beliefs to America by banning abortion and gay marriage, rather than letting Americans decide for themselves how they feel about such issues.

Plus, as Steve Benen points out, this is the same Sarah Palin who ” just got finished telling voters that people in small towns are ‘the best of America,’ where people are ‘patriotic’ and ‘pro-America,’ and where ‘we find the kindness and the goodness and the courage of everyday Americans.’ Sounds like ‘elitism’ to me.”

And as well to me.
