This Is What Elitist Looks Like

Via Vanity Fair… The Grand Duchess of Elitism, Cindy McCain, on stage at the RHC with Laura Bush:

Cindy McCain
Oscar de la Renta dress: $3,000
Chanel J12 White Ceramic Watch: $4,500
Three-carat diamond earrings: $280,000
Four-strand pearl necklace: $11,000–$25,000
Shoes, designer unknown: $600
Total: Between $299,100 and $313,100

Oh my… “No wonder McCain has so many houses: his wife has the price of a Scottsdale split-level hanging from her ears.”

Alan Colmes reaction cracked me up: “Who’s The Elitist?” The Obama campaign should be using that tag line with the photo above in a campaign ad — now.

The idea that these holier than thou hypocrites hype the “elitist” meme on the Democrats is beyond absurd. One can only imagine how much Cindy spends in a day shopping and think how many families that would feed in month or maybe more.  The economy is now officially in a recession and Cindy McCain walks onto the stage dripping in diamonds. Ugh….

    They have inherited or earned their money legally. EIGHT: ‘You shall not steal.‘ NINE: ‘You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.‘ TEN: ‘You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.

    i’ve always thought that we need a commandment restricting alcohol consumption. wait, doesn’t the mccain family get most of its money from selling alcohol? my guess is that they would try to lobby god to repeal that law if it were in place.

    Gumball: Take some advice from an old atheist. Lose the Old Testamanet and go with the New. The you’ll at least sound like you’ve got some religion. (Wouldn’t ot have been great to see how Christ would have tyrned out that group of money changers in St. Paul.)

  4. This is sexist – one helps disfigured children and has a herd of adoptees she helps and the other has setup 17 regional women’s centers in Afghanistan which function as underground battered women’s shelters.How come no picture of Oprah with her diamond glasses? How about a picture of BO in front of his Greek columns in his 6 million dollar stage set who calls us bitter uneducated old women who cling to guns and religion and are afraid of people who look different unlike his cool LA friends — like his grandmother who had to fend off a black attacker without help from him or her husband and was called a racist when she complained.Oh I guess brown faces cant be elitist no matter how many Greek columns they build to pretend they are god’s gift to the unwashed.  Regardless of the contempt they show to women and people of the Midwest.  Regardless of how many times they give us the finger on TV and brush us off their coats.Wonder what we bitterers will do in November?  Wonder who we will judge elitist?

  5. Every time Cindy spends money, the money moves out off her bank account and into the bank accounts of others. This is a good thing. I say to the super-rich, spend spend spend, you are fueling the paychecks of the class of people I rub elbows with. The worst thing that could happen would be if the super-wealthy stopped shopping.

    In response to Greenconsciousness…First of all, he never called you “bitter, uneducated old women.” That’s just a flat-out lie.  I’ve heard/watched that speech time and time again, and he never utters the words “women” or “uneducated…” I promise.  Living in the Good Ol’ Boy  state of Oklahoma, I most definitely agree with his bitter, religion and gun clinging comments. Due to job losses and an ever volatile economy, the American people are becoming “bitter” and clinging to their “guns” and “religion” because it’s the only thing they can control.  One can control the trigger of a gun, it even evokes a sense of power.  One can control their religion, because it’s simply a matter of perception and enables people to “beat others with their Bibles” or exclaim their self-righteousness over all others.  It’s similar to developing an eating disorder as a psychological reaction to chaos in one’s life.  It is human nature to want to have things in control.  You and the McCain camp can take that offensively if you wish, but it’s the truth, I’ve watched it in the Bible Belt for the last 25 years to my disgust.  My question is, what do the McCain’s know?  When was the last time they were terrified of finding work to supply food and shelter for their children?  I don’t judge them for being rich, I say to them, don’t even try to understand the middle class plight. The issue of the $300,ooo dress and accessories has more to do with bad manners than anything.  When George and Laura Bush threw a wedding for their daughter Jenna last year, they planned with the utmost etiquette (something I thought rich people had to learn).  In light of the horrible economy and mortgage mess, they decided it was most respectful to have a small, quiet wedding.  It was the one thing the G-Dub did that I can respect.  Cindy McCain did not show that same respect.  Knowing full well that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were hitting rock bottom, 4 hurricanes were headed for the U.S., and now, today, Merrill Lynch is bought out, Lehman Bros. files for bankruptcy, the Dow loses 504 points, and this is declared the worst economy since the Depression!  And Cindy wears $300K worth of apparel and accessories to the RNC?  And the Republicans have the nerve to call Obama an elitist? Seriously?  Has anyone really thought this out? I’m offended as all hell. I’m a struggling college student with a drive to change my world. You wanna know what the value of Cindy’s get up would mean to me?  College paid for. No more full time job, no more sleepless nights, no more crying because I’m so broke and just fighting to keep my head above water.  So, as a woman in this great nation, Cindy McCain has offended and disrespected me.  P.S. Don’t talk about judgment, unless you are really God, in which case, you have some ‘splainin to do.  This isn’t judgment day, so put down your Bibles and your guns.
