Who Are the Real Elitists?

How the hell do these oligarchs get away with calling us Democrats "elitists"? After all their ugly attacks on Barack & Michelle Obama, how can these out-of-touch, ultra-rich, anti-middle class Rethuglicans get away with this? I'm furious.

It caught our attention, then, when First Lady Laura Bush and would-be First Lady Cindy McCain took the stage Tuesday night wearing some rather fancy designer clothes. So we asked our fashion department to price out their outfits.

Laura Bush
Oscar de la Renta suit: $2,500
Stuart Weitzman heels: $325
Pearl stud earrings: $600–$1,500
Total: Between $3,425 and $4,325

Cindy McCain
Oscar de la Renta dress: $3,000
Chanel J12 White Ceramic Watch: $4,500
Three-carat diamond earrings: $280,000
Four-strand pearl necklace: $11,000–$25,000
Shoes, designer unknown: $600
Total: Between $299,100 and $313,100

Wow! No wonder McCain has so many houses: his wife has the price of a Scottsdale split-level hanging from her ears.

With so many working class people suffering, the GOP doesn't care. They'd rather saunter around their elite parties in their designer couture while all the rest of us are hurt by their "laissez-faire" economic policies. And yet, they still call the Obamas, a couple that only recently paid off their student loans and still only own ONE HOUSE, "elitists"??!!

The hypocrisy just kills me!
