Comments: The epitomy of "limousine liberal"

This lady is a hater and partly crazy to boot. Let me quote from her article..."we began our own informal in-home instruction about Bush, Iraq and Washington over the evening news". She was instructing a 5-year old kid to attempt to counteract the patriotism he was learning in school!!!! She is nuts. Go back to France.

I knew I was in for a laugh when she reffered to Narrowsburg as "upstate" since the town is barely an hour's drive from NYC. A red dot in a blue state? Hardly. Go back to that electoral map of 2004, and you'll see what New York is - a red state, apart from urban monstrosities like NYC and Albany, and the "upstaters" are sick of being pushed around and having all their tax money sucked into the blue dots. And no, Hillary and Chucky aren't popular with them, despite what you read in the New York Times.

The BJ comment is awesome. The rest...severely lackluster and annoying.

This post was too annoying for me to me lazy, lame or whatever.

But now I'll have to scan through for the bj part thanks to Mike DWA.

I too admit that I didn't read the whole thing. Clearly the lady is rather unpleasant. But the term "limousine liberal" is a pet peeve of mine.

Clearly there are such people. But there are even more "limousine conservatives." Republicans are still richer across the spectrum, make up a higher percentage of the upper class, have more political sway, etc. The clever and concerted attempt over the last 15 years to to shift the meaning of "elite" from the right to the left is laughable. But it's also met with some success, thanks to Limbaugh & Co.

But that's just it, dan -- "limousine conservatives" aren't espousing the greatness of "idyllic" France, generous welfare, cheap meds, child care ... when they clearly do not need nor make use of such; indeed, limousine libs implicitly mock such concepts (and people) that actually need such. Burleigh is the personification of it.

Limousine cons know their monetary circumstances and, frankly, enjoy it without guilt!
