Asymmetric on elections

One of my favorite blogs, which I don’t always agree with, is Nelson Guirado’s Asymmetric.
Bookmark it if you haven’t already.
Today he offers two great items. First he explains how the Democrats aren’t really elitist:

Just because Democrats have super (“elite”) delegates that can over-rule their proletariat doesn’t mean that they’re elitist.

And secondly he directs us to this great George Will column:

Obama may be the fulfillment of modern liberalism. Explaining why many working class voters are “bitter,” he said they “cling” to guns, religion and “antipathy to people who aren’t like them” because of “frustrations.” His implication was that their primitivism, superstition and bigotry are balm for resentments they feel because of America’s grinding injustice.

  1. It all depends on what you mean by elitist. Just like it depends on what the meaning of “is” is. You see? Obama is really expressing his admiration for and debt to Clinton, even if it’s in a backhanded sort of way. He’s such a gentleman, no?
