Elitism On The Right And The Left

Over this past weekend, there were two clear incidents that show the contempt that those who are considered elites have for the rest of us.

On the right, supposedly, is one that seems to have no real visible means of income. She dabbles in writing here and there. She even has a book somewhere out there. In reality, this young gal is a dilettante. Yet, for some inexplicable reason, fellow elites value what this gal has to say.

On the left is one that does have a job. Though not very good at it. He seems to jump from job to job. We do not know a lot about this guy. He has written two books, well received by fellow elites and their followers. Yet to this day, we have no idea his college records. Even though he attended three colleges/universities. The gentleman is kind of like Peter Sellers in the movie Being There.

On the right, I am speaking of Sweet Meghan McCain and her stellar appearance on This Week with Christiane Amanpour.

What wisdom drooled from the mouth of the daughter of Sen. John "F--- You" McCain?
This is what she had to say in reference to the Republican senate candidate from Delaware, Christine O'Donnell:

“Well, I speak as a 26-year-old woman and my problem is that, no matter what, Christine O’Donnell is making a mockery of running for public office…She has no real history, no real success in any kind of business….[the message] that sends to my generation is: one day you can just wake and run for Senate, no matter how [much of] a lack of experience you have. And it scares for me for a lot of reasons. I just know, in my group of friends, it turns people off because she’s seen as a nutjob.”

OK, so you are a 26-year-old woman that does not seem to have a real job. Oh, that's right, you are an author. And how many books did you sell, Miss McCain? As of September 16, a rip roaring 2,644. And what was the title of the tome? Dirty, Sexy Politics. How original! And really Sweet Meghan, what is it that makes you the arbiter of what is or is not a mockery of running for public office? How about a former state senator that gets elected to the United States senate and two years later runs for president? Hmm. Betcha didn't think of that one, eh Sweet Meghan?

No, it is just an elitism that is taking certain precincts on the right. You heard it the night that Miss O'Donnell won the race against Congressman Mike Castle. Karl Rove ranted on Hannity how terrible it was and that it blew the Republicans chances to take the senate. Many others have mocked Miss O'Donnell.

What they fail to realize is that it was Miss O'Donnell that mounted a conservative challenge rather than buy the conventional wisdom that everyone had to get behind RINO* Mike Castle. And with a little help from Tea Party activists and some radio talk show hosts like Mark Levin, Miss O'Donnell won and is the candidate for the Republican party in Delaware. She won the majority of Republican votes in a primary. Something that she has done before.

And another thing. The primary season is over. If Miss McCain cares about getting a Republican majority, then get on board the O'Donnell Express and shut up about all the other stuff.

That leads to the elitism on the left, courtesy of the Psychologist-In-Chief, the Dear Leader, President Obama.

Well, our shrink had this to say to a group of Democrats at, what else, a fundraiser over the weekend:

"Part of the reason that our politics seems so tough right now and facts and science and argument does not seem to be winning the day all the time is because we're hardwired not to always think clearly when we're scared. And the country's scared.”

Yes, you are right about one thing. The people of the United States are scared. Scared of losing a job. Seeing that adds to an over 10% unemployment rate that shows no signs of abating. Scared of losing their homes. Homes that many bought and are paying for in the old fashioned honest way. Scared of losing their 401K s. Scared of losing investment income. Scared of having taxes raised when they are already paying an array of taxes at the local, county, state and federal level.

I am sorry if that makes us a little bit irrational in your mind Dear Leader, President Obama. But what he fails to mention is the possibility of his prescription for our fears is not part of the problem.

That is the problem. The people just do not believe that you did what you claimed you would do when you were Sen. Messiah Barack. That you would cut taxes. That you would not add to the deficit. That you would implement policies that would not let unemployment rise above eight percent. That you would pay-as-you-go when funding government programs. To be blunt Dear Leader, President Obama, the American people are beginning to see that you have been a fraud. And they, no we are ready to put the brakes on your hyper partisan, left wing agenda.

We need a leader, not a psychologist in the White House. We need some one that does not mock the people that he serves. And that is what the Dear Leader, President Obama, does every time he says things like this. Sir, with the respect of the office of President of the United States, you have failed us. And we are gonna send a message to you.

This multi-faceted elitism of the left and the right is what people are reacting to. We are tired of being told what is good and right for us by people that just do not live in the real world. That is what Sweet Meghan McCain and the Dear Leader, President Obama, like to do. And methinks they are going to be righteously rebuked two weeks from tonight.
