Elitist Vacation

Obama Takes Elitist Vacation...


Yes, he went to Hawaii, but so do millions of others per year. Even my parents, who've never been anywhere CLOSE to wealthy, have vacationed in Hawaii a couple of times.

On the other hand, as the above article states, Obama, unlike our Governor Bush, doesn't own any family compounds and unlike McElite himself, doesn't own several homes and ranches across the country.

Every time I hear the Republicans say how "elitist" liberals are, I think of this great quote I read by Jon Stewart:

The Christian Right always throws around this term " the liberal elite." I keep thinking to myself, what's more elite than believing only you will go to heaven?
That just says it all, don't it?

Dude. He went home, for cryin' out loud. The man's grandmother lives there, he was mostly raised there. McMust-Lose-In-November-Or-I'll-Have-Lost-All-Faith-In-Americans is really grasping at straws, no?

Oh, TOTALLY! Didn't you know? If a Republican does it, it's, like, in the name of God, or something. If a Democrat does it, it's elitist... Apparently, Democrats aren't ALLOWED to do ANYTHING, because EVERYTHING they do is elitist...

Like Jon Stewart said...

Oh, and don't forget, his sister still lives there. I guess that makes HER elitist, too.

Wish I lived there... :)
