    there is sometimes an anti-working class bias on this site, I am forced to say that I understand it.  Blue collar folks in this country have some reaching out to do of their own

    Translation in the mind of an independant who abandoned the party after it abandoned him :

    "working class people are just too stupid to know whats good for them. They better start asking us to tell them before its too late!"

    That isnt what you meant. But thats certainly how it translates. Thats where the "liberal elite" thing the rethugs picked up on and amplified came from. And how they took the working class.. and thus the entire government.

    Remember: there's no sense in talking to them. Talk to your base first, the middle second, and the amoral and lying right never.

      that does sound elitist.  But hey, I'm sorry our Democratic leaders are too busy busting their asses fighting a Republican majority and trying to protect the rights of workers to sit down, swig beer with you and tell pussy jokes.

        by passing Nafta? Gatt? Signing us up to the WTO? Shipping american industry to communist china? Shipping the software , engineering and white collar industries to Pakistan and India?

        to sit down, swig beer with you and tell pussy jokes.

        If thats how you view americas working class, by the way the large majority of americans, then you are part of the problem.
