Elites on Elitism

Further to a this "bittergate" horseshit, Atrios quotes Chris "Tweety" Matthews from a profile written on him in The New York Times:

“I don’t think people look at me as the establishment, do you?” Matthews asked me. “Am I part of the winner’s circle in American life? I don’t think so.”
Tweety makes $5 million a year peddling personality-driven bullshit masquerading as political discourse on tee-vee.

Actual elites are wringing their hands about "elitists" who uncharitably use the word "bitter." This has to stop.

One could argue that he's a loser who got lucky enough to find a profession in which that's not a handicap.
