As Barry Rubin says of Obama voters:
To support Obama makes them smart, sophisticated, anti-racist, modern, members of an intellectual and social elite standing against the yahoos with the pitchforks out in the provinces [aka Jesusland]. From the defenders of the downtrodden, the left has transformed itself into the well-financed aristocracy sneering at the peasantry.
“If this guy prints more money between now and the election. I don’t know what y’all would do to him in Iowa, but we -- we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas. Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treacherous -- or treasonous in my opinion.”
