"Again and again, in the course of the electoral battle, I heard striking tales of this tragically inverted form of class consciousness: of a cleaning lady who voted for Bush because she could never support a rich man for president." -- Have your Excedrin handy while you read Thomas Frank's article from the NYReview of Books, "What's The Matter With Liberals?" He sorts through the many, many answers to that question, from 30 years of "snob-baiting" John Kerry through the debacle of Election '04 and into our current woes. Thought-provoking, but in a blood-boiling kind of way.
