In response to a question from Brian Williams about "elitism", John McCain pinpoints D.C. and New York City as the bastions, or, as Politico puts it, "fake America." I suppose that's why bin Laden targeted lower Manhattan?
WILLIAMS: Who is a member of the elite?
MCCAIN: I -- I know where a lot of 'em live. (LAUGH)
WILLIAMS: Where's that?
MCCAIN: Well, in our nation's capital and New York City. I've seen it. I've lived there. I know the town. I know -- I know what a lot of these elitists are. The ones that she never went to a cocktail party with in Georgetown. I'll be very frank with you. Who think that they can dictate what they believe to America rather than let Americans decide for themselves.
