    define "classy".
    That word, and it's declension, gotta lotta class always makes me wonder.
    Is it saying that he's like nobility? High Class, so to speak?
    Not that I'm ragging on Eric (who's way cool) or you (with the great handle, I can see that little bird zipping all over the house, from window to window).
    But the other image that "Classy" brings to mind is (forgive me) Donald Trump and what he'd consider high class. Kind of gold plated, silicone filled, expensively dressed...
    It's just a weird concept for Lefties (Like atheists saying "Bless You").

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

      nobility, aristocracy, wealth, or social standing. Same with "being classy".

      Dictionary definitions for 'classy' say things like "stylish and sophisticated", "having a high standard of personal behavior",  or "socially skillful and graceful".

      By that definition - or nearly any reasonable definition - Trump has no class at all. He is a member of class, which is a different thing altogether semantically.

      Modern revolutions have succeeded because of solidarity, not force.
