You would think this would go away by now.

Stewart can afford to mock western Pennsylvanians, I doubt they make up much of his demographic.

But he does miss the boat completely on the word elitist.

Elitist: noun
One who despises people or things regarded as inferior, especially because of social or intellectual pretension: snob. Informal: snoot. See attitude, self-love

Voters want not only a leader but a representative that they feel they can connect with, who will listen to and understand their concerns. An elitist is someone that not only thinks they are better (whether or not they indeed are is besides the point) but looks down on his/her believed inferiors as unimportant. It's not just that people thought they could have a beer with GWB, it's that they thought he understood them.

But Stewart's comedy seems to backfire here -- it's almost as if he pretends to support Obama by appearing to agree with the worst interpretations of Obama's "clinging" remarks. I don't think he's helping Obama any if you ask me.

At first, I was like, "Uh, who's 'Stewart,' and what the hell is this dude talking about?"

Then I realized, Capt. Dictionary is commenting in the wrong thread.

Thanks for the link Skippy.
