1. It doesn't matter if they listen to us

As long as they listen to him and fill up the collection plate.

The young man certainly is in a hurry to get onto another job. Must be boring to be the State AG.

2. "liberal elites"

This coming from a Stanford and Yale-educated lawyer. Sounds pretty elite to me.
