Check “Think Progress“:
In his interview with Rush Limbaugh this afternoon, Karl Rove claimed that the people criticizing Bush are “sort of elite, effete snobs who 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.”
Oh, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.
a.) Elite? Sixty-five percent of the population is elite?
b.) Effete? Yes, we are the side of the openly gay. See, we think it’s far better for folks to just be able to be with who they are attracted to in the first place rather than dragging a wife and kids along in a lie until you get caught in a meth-fuel gay prostitute romp. Speaking of which, Karl, who was Jeff Gannon spending the night with when he stayed over at the White House?
c.) Only in America would folks buy that the son of a millionaire, a man who went to Phillips Academy, Yale, and Harvard, is “Middle America.”
Shoot, if that’s what it takes to be Middle America, I’m somehow an elite snob who’s scraping the bottom of the barrel.
