The Elite v The Little People

Reported by Melanie - August 6, 2004 -

Andrew Breitbart, author of Hollywood, Interrupted: Insanity Chic in Babylon: The Case Against Celebrity, was a guest today (August 6, 2004) on Dayside w/Linda Vester. Prior to a break before Breitbart's actual appearance, guest host Mike Jerrick promoed the segment: "Sharon Stone said she couldn't kiss Halle Barry" because George Bush is president. More coming up.

When Breitbart came on, he and Jerrick delivered some incredible sound bites: Jerrick: Will there be more kissin' under Kerry? And, does "more lesbian kissing" help Kerry get elected? Breitbart: "That would be a viable way" to get him elected.

Jerrick about Springsteen's beat Bush concert tour: Springsteen claims this is his first foray into politics. Breitbart: Not true. Once he urged his audience to buy copies of Al Franken's book and he said Bush should be impeached. Again Breitbart: The "little people" tend to vote more for Republicans, while "the elite" on the East and West coast tend to vote more for Democrats.

COMMENT: Imagine being Mr. or Ms. Middle America, paddling around your house, listening with half an ear, and having these phrases jump out at you? What kind of picture's painted for you?
