And That's The Problem

When Conservatives speak of media bias against white, rural people who don't have fancy degrees, who speak in homespun turns-of-phrase, and lead decidedly unflashy lives, it's difficult for urban Liberals to understand the level of frustration we feel about it.

Perhaps, though, I can show you what I mean in this latest Newsweek cover, coming out 6 October. It features Governor Palin, and is titled, "She's one of the folks (and that's the problem)".

I never thought I'd feel the same way as the time I heard Huffington Post's audio of Senator Obama talking about "bitter people who cling to guns and religion" to high-powered San Fransciscans.

But I just did. Bravo Newsweek. Thanks for reminding us how exactly elitists feel about their fellow Americans.
