Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


The jilted Clinton supporter Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild recently endorsed John McCain, saying Barack Obama is elitist and unable to connect with everyday people. De Rothschild certainly knows something about elitism — the wife of British banking scion Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, she reportedly splits her time between homes in New York and London — but it’s unlikely she knows all that much about everyday people. Here she is on CNN explaining her endorsement of McCain:

“The people out, you know, who are the rednecks or whoever, are bitter.”

Surely the rednecks or whoever recognize this woman as one of their own. Video after the jump.
