Elitist Attitude.

Hilary, former first lady and international sniper dodger, called Barack Obama an elitist yesterday.
When your income since leaving the White House is a reported $109 Million, throwing the word elitist at someone just doesn't ring true. I don't know how many people are on staff at the White House, but it is a staff. Once you have enjoyed living in a home with a staff, I don't think you can call someone an elitist.
John McCain quickly jumped on board to agree. Hilary, if the conservative opponent agrees with something you have said about Obama, you might want to consider that your wrong about this.
McCain's wife, Cindy, was asked for the traditional Cookie recipe that all potential first ladies are asked to give. Years ago when Bill Clinton was running and they asked Hilary, it was something of a minor media stir when she replied, I have better things to do than stay home and bake cookies. I agreed with her then.
Cindy McCain went a step further though. On the McCain website, she posted their family recipes. A woman kept looking at them thinking she had seen them some where before. Yup, Cindy McCain had plagiarized them word for word from the Food Network.
Nice!
Ahi tuna with Napa cabbage slaw, farfalle pasta with turkey sausage, peas and mushrooms and perhaps some passionfruit mousse for dessert.
You know, simple un-elitist like meals for down to earth folk like you and me. I can't tell you how much we all enjoyed passionfruit mousse for dessert when I was a kid growing up poor.
The McCain staff said it was an error done by an unpaid intern.
I am confused. Did Cindy loose her list of recipes, or are we to understand that an unpaid intern is the one cooking meals at the McCain family home.
In all honesty, the three of them are elitist. America has 300 million people. To step forward and say, I think I am the best person in this country to run things, you have to have something of a elitist attitude.
