Maureen Dowd Defends Obama

Read Obama's book and it's absurd to accuse him of being elitist. He's no "I was born in the ghetto; I'm still here" Tupac Shakur, but like millions of kids in America today, he was raised by a single parent of extremely modest means. His ascent to success personifies the hopes and dreams of this class. Few get there, but few work as hard as Obama.

Remember Bill Clinton's hometown of Hope, Arkansas? I can't remember another national politician who has come from the middling class. I guess there's Bob Dole.

I know a couple politicians who are not a "men of the people": John McCain (son of an admiral), George W. Bush (heir to a Connecticut family transplanted to Texas).

Conservatives love playing this little game, acting as if the “elite” Democratic candidates are not in touch with people like themselves, even though the guys doing the attacking — like Rove, Limbaugh, O’Reilly and Hannity — are wealthy and cosseted.


Haven’t we had enough of this hypocritical comedy of people in the elite disowning their social status for political purposes? The Bushes had to move all the way to Texas from Greenwich to make their blue blood appear more red.

No profanes - sacred
