Obama an Elitist ?

Hey! Guess who called Obama an "elitist" ? ;) Lynn Forester de Rothschild. Also known as Lady de Rothschild.

Author/blogger John Scalzi lays down the (well-deserved) snark here:
Anyone who lives on a 3,200 acre estate that features an entrance hall “notable for its large paintings by Thomas Gainsborough, George Romney, and Joshua Reynolds” loses the ability to criticize anyone else in the entire goddamn universe for being “elitist,” particularly a dude who while growing up got to experience the joys of a food stamp dinner.

Yeah, I got problems with Obama. Serious ones - especially since his "let's tear up the Fourth Amendment" vote on the odious FISA act. But great Googly Moogly! There are some Hillary supporters who are so far out there, you couldn't spot them with the Hubble Space Telescope...

I'm really sick of hearing the word "elitist" get batted around. You don't hear any reg'lar people using it, now do you. No. You don't.

The only time I use it is when MP gets his nose up in the air about being English... ;)
