    ...pushing the fakery that the middle class isn't working class, that the interests of educated professionals have nothing in common with clerks or factory workers or burger flippers...

    This is a common conceit among the college educated, that a 4-year degree and the fact that they shower before work instead of after makes them somehow capitalists, natural conservatives. It ain't so. White-collar, blue-collar, pink-collar, no collar, if you get a W-2 each year, if your income is mostly "wages, salaries and tips", then you are working stiffs and you should be voting liberal. You belong on our side of the barricades.
