I know, I know, all the swing voters out there had been breathlessly anticipating the much-coveted Passion of the Weiss endorsement. By contrast, Colin Powell’s decision to support Obama was mere small potatoes. After all, Andrew Sullivan, Chris Matthews, and even that twerp, Sean Hannity have concurred that my opinion will probably swing Ohio and certainly Florida to the Dems (what can I say? I hold clout among Septuagenarian Jews.)

Rather than bludgeon you with a heavy-handed diatribe here, I’ve decided to contribute to Largehearted Boy’s Why Obama series. Instead of squawking about policy proposals or differing ideologies between the two candidates, I opted to focus on the concept of the “elite,” the philosophy of “elitism” and how Republicans have conflated the two. There are jokes about Andrew Jackson, John C. Calhoun and aerial wolf hunting galore. If that doesn’t sell you, I don’t know what will.
