One of the most ridiculous elements of the right’s terminally ridiculous political discourse is the constant invective thrown at “elitists” by those who are, by any sane definition, among the most powerful, well-connected and wealthy candidates imaginable. Bill Maher took on Newt Gingrich over this brilliantly.
I had somehow missed Newt going after those Manhattan elitists who ride the subway. It’s like he’s a walking Onion article, for crying out loud. But he actually did say it.
