"elite, effete snobs" vs. "middle America"

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Outgoing Machiavelli-wannabe Karl Rove gave an interview to Rush Limbaugh, (audio courtesy of ThinkProgress) where he rushed to Dubya’s defense:

“Many times the people that I see criticizing him are, you know, sort of elite, effete snobs who, you know, can’t hold a candle to this guy. What they don’t like about him is that he is common sense, that he is Middle America…”

This is the best takedown I’ve seen, courtesy of Bob Cesca at HuffPo:

Put aside the Yale, the Skull & Bones, the cheerleading, the oil wealth, the estates, the boats and this uncomfortably weird obsession with effeteness; there are very few Americans who are quite as privileged, entitled, sheltered, and coddled than this current president.

So Karl? Shut the fuck up.


PS: Memo to Rove: If Bush is truly “one of the best-read people I’ve ever met,” then you need to get out more.
