"The Ruling Class & the Country Class"

For years, I've watched as the Republican establishment tittered in embarrassment at the greatest President of our lifetime, Reagan. And wondered why my party, whose values should have broad, populist appeal, is painted time and again as "the party of the rich."

The idea that Republicans represent "big business," "the rich," etc., is a baseless canard; big business gave more money to Obama than McCain, for example.

The lie gets articulated over and over by the chattering classes, as Democrats and their PR flacks (NPR, CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, NY Times, etc) intentionally nurture and maintain the illusion that the Democrats are the party of the PEOPLE.

Today, Rush Limbaugh focused most of his attention on an article that potentially illuminates this disconnect. It's a brilliant description / re-thinking of the relationship between America's elite and the rest of us. (It's also probably the most hit site on the web today; Rush managed to shut down American Spectator's servers today.)

Ignore it at your own peril. The article is here, and commentary from instapundit is here.
