Who's an elitist?

Posted By on Thu, Sep 4, 2008 at 11:09 AM

It was funny hearing speaker after speaker at the convention of the fat cats talk about elitist Democrats. Vanity Fair illustrated the absurdity by tallying up the cost of Cindy McCain's wardrobe, including jewels -- about $300,000.

Sound about right, Ms. Bates? (And I have somebody who wants to ask you where you got a $50 Hermes scarf on e-Bay, unless it was a counterfeit.)

Laura Bush got dressed for a mere $3-$4,000.
