Last Sunday, Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne offered his advice to incoming DNC chair Howard Dean. Among the myriad questions to be answered, Dionne passes along a "must-do list" with items such as "Defeating the Bush Social Security Plan" and "Holding fast to the party's commitment to abortion rights and tolerance."
And then there is this: "Understanding the views of NASCAR dads, security moms, country-western music fans, gun owners, Southerners, country people and others who regard the Democrats as the party of overeducated, arrogant, Volvo-driving elitists."
Country people? Why on earth would these folks ever "regard the Democrats as the party of overeducated, arrogant, Volvo-driving elitists"?
