Sorry for the lack of posts

I've been sick and tired. Here's a Derive Politics post instead, with excerpt:

"It has long been popular to accuse leaders in America of elitism. Being a highly influential government or corporate official tends to carry a perception of being detached. People in high places, it is said, are nothing like us, having attended their fancy schools with their fancy educations and privileged lifestyles. They live only on the coasts, call the rest of America flyover country, eat arugula and share no interests with what are considered the common folk. In short, elites are bad because they aren't like us, they think they're better than us, and they don't know what we really want."
