5. Good analysis. It's a double edged sword, too, that they strike both ways with.
I'm too lazy to track it down, but I saw a similar article on MSNBC.com a couple of days ago. The title was something like "Obama has trouble winning downgrade Democrats." The gist of the article was that Obama only appeals to the educated elite, not the "downgrade" Democrats (I think that was the word--it was similarly offensive). They explained that only 34% of Democrats have a college degree, and only that elite likes Obama, who talks about buying arugula in Whole Foods to farmers who don't know what arugala is and live nowhere near Whole Foods.

They go on to explain that the rest of the Democrats, the "downgrade" Democrats whom they imply are a bunch of ignorant schmoes, are supporting Hillary and Edwards.

Notice the nice little flick of the wrist? The elites are out of touch and support Obama, the rest of the Democrats are ignorant and support Clinton and Edwards.

More proof that the mainstream media is the advertising department for the Republican Party.
