May As Well Weigh In

I think it's kind of funny that Obama and his ilk, I'm thinking John Kerry here, look down upon the "working class". Where does he get the altitude?:

Asked at that fund-raiser why his candidacy was struggling in Pennsylvania, Mr. Obama responded that many voters were “bitter” about their economic inequalities.

“So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or antitrade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations,”
It takes a special kind of arrogance to come up with the fantasy that we working-class respond to financial setbacks by huddling in our basement lairs, caressing our guns, and muttering about "tham homos and messicans". And why else would we "cling to religion"?

The religion bit is especially down-looky. Why do you cling to your religion, senator? Oh, that's right, you go to church but you don't ever listen to what is said there. "Imagine my surprise, I was just jumping up and banging my tambourine because everyone else was doing it. I didn't realize that Reverend Wright had just accused the Jews of flying planes full of AIDS virus into the World Trade Center."

These remarks were made to rich folk, who were, of course, standing around in tuxedos, men wearing monocles, the women with noses up-pointed, all sipping tea from bone china teacups, with pinkie fingers out-pointed. No? See, two can play at that game.

Anyway, the best response ever to the haughty:

I hope that somewhere a group of hunters, or a church group, is working on an Obama banner.
