Your southern accent and folksy colloquialisms leads Kathleen Parker to think she's smarter than you, all evidence of her own thoughts to the contrary.

Don't you just hate liberal elitists with their elitist Yankee values and sneering of anyone outside their liberal elitist, latte-sipping, college-educated, coastal-living, granola-munching world?

Oh wait, that's no liberal. That's Kathleen Parker.

Kathleen Parker quite visibly cringed at the AFP's newest anti-Obamacare ad, not because it was full of crap and propaganda. No, she didn't like the fact that the "Obamacare sufferer" depicted had a Southern accent:

And by the way, I think you could find someone who doesn't have a southern accent who is confused by this act. (CHUCKLE) Because we always seem to find a character who seems a little country-fied, who can't just fathom. You know, there are plenty of smart, sophisticated people, who are equally hazy about what is really going on.

This is not the first time that Parker has been uncomfortable with the less than urbane, big city dweller she is representing conservative values.

She found herself less than entranced by Sarah Palin's folksy affectations at the 2008 Veep debate, which separated her from most of the conservative male punditry who got turned on by it. When she suggested that Palin might not be ready for prime time, she was attacked by her base, for just not getting it.

She also defended Ann Romney's "horse therapy" for her MS.

So remember Kathleen Parker the next time liberals are called elitists for demanding equality, no matter where you live geographically.
