What a Lady

Saying we Gold Diggers have to stick together, former Clinton supporter, the insanely rich Lynn Forester de Rothschild, announced that she was throwing her support behind John McCain. She added that another advantage of the change in allegiance is that she and Cindy McCain can have pearl parties to raise money for the McCain/Palin ticket. Unfortunately, Sarah Palin won't be invited, because she's Valley Trash.

The Daily Intel explains, Insanely Wealthy, Titled Aristocrat Thinks Barack Obama Is ‘Elitist’:

Now she's announcing her support for John McCain for president. Why not Obama? “Because frankly I don't like him,” she told CNN. And why would Forester (who is a voting American but lives at Ascott House, her husband Sir Evelyn Robert Adrian de Rothschild's country estate in Britain) not like the Illinois senator? 'I feel like he has not given me reason to trust him,' she said. “I feel like he is an elitist.'
According to Radar, Rich Hillary Friend Supports McCain, Thinks Obama Is An Elitist:
Forester is a longtime friend of the Clintons, who honeymooned at the White House following her November 2000 marriage to British banker Sir Evelyn Rothschild. But her love for Democrats who have or still are running for president ends there. Forester, unironically, thinks that Obama "is arrogant and has a problem connecting with average Americans." This is a woman, mind you, who splits her time between New York and London, who is the CEO of E.L. Rothschild, a holding company that manages hundreds of millions of dollars in investments across the world, and who is the mistress of two grand British estates.
Oh yes, this Lady is certainly a friend of the people. You can watch her literally look down her nose as she sneers at Campbell Brown, as Brown asks her what makes Obama elitist.

If you're not sure where you fall within the elitist spectrum, you might want to read Mark Morford's column in the San Francisco Chronicle, Are you an elitist? -- 18 revealing ways to know for sure.

The elitist issue has been a topic of conversation among the LLWL Gang. We cannot comprehend why intelligence has become a negative as a qualification for President. Both McCain and Palin were below average students in schools and have clearly not risen above that level in the years since. They proudly assert their lack of intellectual prowess as a plus. And as for George Bush -- we won't even go there. Yet many, like the Lady, denigrate Barack Obama for his superior intelligence, branding him an elitist. It seems that elitist is a mere step up from child molestor (which is worse unless you are a member of the Catholic clergy, in which case an exemption is granted).

As one of the Gang observed, when picking a doctor or lawyer, we want the best person we could find. Who wants the physician who goofed off and finished last in his case to perform major surgery on you? Ditto if you've been charged with a crime and could face many years behind bars if convicted. The last thing you want is for your criminal defense attorney to be a jokster and have a few (too many) beers with you. No -- you want the best there is. Elitist is a plus in this situation, because it means he's intelligent and knows his stuff.

For the final word, I think Kel at The Osterley Times says it best:
That's Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a member of the family who have the wealthiest bloodline on the planet, telling us that Obama is "elitist".

It's official. Irony is dead...

I think it was Bill Maher who pointed out that all the Founding Fathers were elitist easterners.

The endorsement by Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild will be among McCain's most valued. Here's why.
