Elitist Joe Watkins Defends Elitist John McCain

Oh, you guys are making it so easy.

On MSNBC, conservative pundit Joe Watkins (one of those black conservatives who exist almost exclusively on tv) has the unenviable task of defending John McCain forgetting how many houses he owns. Watkins first reaches for the POW card, because we can't think John McCain is an out of touch elitist who isn't like the rest of us because of his military service. That doesn't make any sense, but that's the line they're going with. But where Watkins digs himself in deep is in arguing that lots of Americans have multiple homes and investment properties. Lots.

That's like Karl Rove's ham-handed swipe at Obama as the snooty guy at the country club, ignoring the fact that the vast majority of us do not have country club memberships (and frankly, couldn't tell you where the nearest one is).

They're not like us.
