Bitter about the truly elite

“… The people who claim to be the ‘non-elitists,’ are the ones who constantly shift tax burdens from the people who fire you, to you. John McCain voted to repeal the estate tax, voted against raising the minimum wage, has no health care plan, and is fine with keeping the working class in Iraq for a hundred years. But, he’s a real ‘man of the people.’

And the president went to Harvard and Yale, and inherited your country from his dad. But, he’s not an elitist because he can neither read nor write.

What does it take to label someone ‘elitist’ these days anyway? They wear shoes? …

You know who is bitter in America? I am. Because (some people) voted twice for a retarded guy they wanted to have a beer with, and everybody else had to suffer the consequences!”

– Comedian Bill Maher weighing in on the debate over elitism in politics during the New Rules segment of HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” (April 18).
