Something to remember next time Sens. McCain, Clinton and/or those who are for them call the Obamas “elitist” and out of touch

From a column by wish-I'd thought-up-this-name Primus Mootry, columnist; high school teacher.

Both the Clintons and the McCains are worth over $100 million. And how can a rich, former first lady possibly position herself as an in-touch underdog? That’s absurd.

On the other hand, the Obamas are barely worth a million, and that’s a recent result of the success of Senator Obama’s book sales. Otherwise, as far as I’m able to tell, the Obamas have been, by choice, fighting in the trenches along with the rest of us. Plus, you’d have to look at where the guy has come from.
