Really quick thought...

So Obama is "Elitest", eh?

Last I checked, he wasn't running to be a social worker. He was running to be the President of the United States. That's more or less the LEADER OF THE FREE FUCKING WORLD.

... Isn't that the one position we DO want someone "elite" in?

elitism
elit·ism
noun
2: the selectivity of the elite; especially : snobbery

John Stewart said the same thing the other night. Elitism and being elite aren't the same thing, and the semantics just disguise the fact that Obama said something he shouldn't have said and should have been way too smart to have said publicly, he was caught and won't fess up, and was shown to be as full of shit as the next candidate.

It's no big shock that Obama is human and the comment should by no means kill his campaign or be more than a minor gaffe, but the media treatment is a joke. I like Obama and support him over Hillary, but they're both reasonably good candidates and essentially good people. It's become really unfair how the media in general has defended Obama and provided him excuses for all his missteps while raking Hillary over the coals for every mistake.

I think it was a joke at the fact that it was spelled elitest, as in most elite, rather than elitist. :p
