Hillary spent the weekend consoling us mid-westerners hurt by Barack Obama’s comments on how many of us were “bitter and clinging to guns and religion as a way to explain our frustrations”. Among many of her comments meant to show us how she differs from the “elitist” Obama, she made sure she stressed how she was a pro-gun churchgoer that was taught to hunt at an early age by her father.
And then this yesterday:
After a weekend spent making direct appeals to gun owners and church goers, Hillary Clinton said Sunday a query about the last time she fired a gun or attended church services “is not a relevant question in this debate” over Barack Obama’s recent comments on small town Americans.
“We can answer that some other time,” Clinton said at a press conference held in a working class neighborhood here. “This is about what people feel is being said about them. I went to church on Easter. I mean, so?”
So who exactly is supposed to be the out of touch elitist?
