Guest Opinion: Don't be fooled — they're all 'elitists'

2 0 0

Just wondering, who are the elites? Conservatives love to blame the elites. The elites are responsible for Kabul. The elites are the ones forcing you to wear masks and get vaccines. The elites don’t respect your opinions. All of this begs the question — who are these elites?

George W. Bush, who started the war in Afghanistan, is the son of a presidential scion. "W" went to Yale and Harvard. Barack Obama, who extended the war, went to Harvard Law School. Donald Trump went to Wharton, one of the most elite schools in the country.

Mike Pompeo, who negotiated the terrible deal with the Taliban, went to Harvard Law School, too. Are these the non-elitists? How can that be?

Perhaps the Senate offers a clue. That must be the ticket. Oh, wait. What about these Republican elites? Tom Cotton, who is in hurry to get our troops back into Afghanistan, went to Harvard and Harvard Law. There’s Ben Sasse from Nebraska who thinks we should go back in, too — Harvard and Yale.

Maybe it’s Mitt Romney. Whoops. Harvard JD and MBA. I know it’s Ted Cruz. Sorry, you........
