Kathleen Parker is an Orlando-based Op-Ed columnist who also writes for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.l She just wrote an excellent piece on why Barack Obama's comment about those rubes who inhabit the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has ticked off so many people: http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/opinion/sfl-parker17aprilsbapr17,0,1487035.story.
She makes an excellent point. Obama denies being an elitist. Fine, he's entitled to do just that, but the fact of the matter is that he made his comments in SAN FRANCISCO, the heart of the liberal elitist beast, and despite his unquestionable eloquence, actions speak much louder than words. His actions are indicative of his being the prototypical elitist.
