Imagine my shock last night, as I was reading What's the Matter with Kansas? by Thomas Frank, to come across this passage:
Whatever the target, the conservative social critique always boils down to the same, simple message: liberalism . . . is an affectation of the loathsome rich, as bizarre as their taste for Corgi dogs and extra-virgin olive oil.
Holy crap! I think my corgi would be shocked to learn that he is a bizarre affectation of the loathsome rich. I'll have you know that corgis have a sturdy working class heritage as rough and tumble cow herding dogs. And my corgi likes to drink beer and watch football as much as the next guy.
