Crooked Timber takes a look at our own Joe Scarborough. (here's an excerpt)
In 580 words, Scarborough uses the words elite or elites 6 times. This kind of class resentment is understandable from a regular Joe (his term) like Scarborough, but its hard to put your finger on when it developed. He might have picked it up during his hardscrabble days as a partner in a Florida law firm. He might have learned to resent the elites that he hired and fired as a newspaper owner
Or maybe its more recent. Like most millionaire television pundits, Regular Joe can probably really commiserate with the concerns that working folks have about shitty service from the incompetent idiots that our employers hire to style our hair and apply our makeup.
