GOP - Party of the Little Guy

Some of us have been saying this for a long time.

From the article:

"Once upon a time, America's distaste for elitism translated easily into a distrust for conservatism. But today, with country-club Republicans having been swept aside by Nascar Republicans, there is nothing undemocratic about American conservatism. Among elites, it is now liberalism that is the dominant creed."

Part of the reason, of course, is because the GOP (primarily) believes in living the American dream, such as building a small business into a large one. Dem elites already have theirs and don't want to share with the "great unwashed." I'm not wealthy, but I'd like to be!

This year's candidates are perfect examples. Who'd we rather go to a ballgame with? Who'd we rather have at our barbeque? Who'd we rather let walk our dog? Of course, the answer is Bush, unless you have one of those dogs who just sits on a pillow or wears jewelry. Sure, Bush is loaded, but at least he worked a little for it. Kerry married into it. He probably never made a cent in the private sector, but simply married well.
