Defining the real 'Elite'

Elite: a group of people regarded as superior in some way and therefore favored (Oxford American Dictionary, 1980)

Among the elite would be owners of sports teams, corporations, dressage horses that compete in the Olympics, i.e., people with tons of money and outsized bank accounts in Switzerland, the Cayman Islands, Bermuda, etc.

Wait. Don’t Republicans hate the ‘elite’? Obviously, they’re confused about the true meaning of the word ‘elite.’

But just in time, Rick Santorum explains it all for us. He said " . . . we [conservative Republicans] will never have the elite, smart people on our side."

Ah, now that makes sense. Anyone with a working brain cell is obviously not going to vote for any of those anti-intellectual Republicans.

Thank goodness we were warned!
