Why the ‘new elite’ don’t get Tea Party folks who are shaking up the GOP and America
Colorado has two eastern-born and bred Ivy Leaguers running for the U.S. Senate, Ken Buck and Michael Bennet, who are members of the "new elite" and don't seem to really get America or Tea Party folks. At least Buck has lived in a small town, Greeley, and has spent the last several years serving rural Coloradans as Weld County's district attorney. LINKS: The tea party warns of a new elite.

And at least Buck opens his mouth when he speaks and doesn’t seem to be suffering from Locust Valley lock jaw like the insufferable Wesleyan, Bennet.Posted by Laura Victoria on 10/24/2010 at 02:37 PM
