  1. Well, if I don't screw up, I may hit 180 in a couple of years...

    Funnily enough, I hit elite status in Wente's column, too -- but I codeswitch.

    I like MMA and tailgate parties, I prefer blue collar bars, but I also like the arts, and I got a ridiculously expensive education...

  2. Wente, herself a truly snobby elite, more or less agrees with the FOX News Toronto Sun crowd that anyone who graduated High School and has read a book that didn't involve spies, vampires or heaving bosums or have the words "for dummies" in the title is an "elite"

  3. Orwell would have had a field day examining the degradation of the word "elite".
