My friends, what John McCain doesn’t understand is irony. On elitism:
MCCAIN: I– I know where a lot of ’em live. (LAUGH)
WILLIAMS: Where’s that?
MCCAIN: Well, in our nation’s capital and New York City. I’ve seen it. I’ve lived there. I know the town. I know– I know what a lot of these elitists are. The ones that she never went to a cocktail party with in Georgetown. I’ll be very frank with you. Who think that they can dictate what they believe to America rather than let Americans decide for themselves.
Say what you will about Arugola, but between the seven houses, Ferragamo shoes, and Sarah Palin’s wardrobe, the “everyman” trope seems pretty weak this year.
