Andrea Mitchell: I Plead Guilty To Being One of The 'Elite, Smart People'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 09/17/2012 1:18:11 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Gee, and you thought Barack Obama had an inflated opinion of himself. After watching Andrea Mitchell in action, he might actually need self-esteem therapy . . .

On her MSNBC show today, Mitchell rolled a clip in which Rick Santorum told the Value Voters Summit that "we will never have the elite, smart people on our side." After asking a former Santorum aide what he he meant by the "elite smart people," Mitchell declared "I think I should plead guilty."

"Andrea Mitchell, NBC News" is too dim-witted to realize that Santorum was making fun of the self-appointed "smart" people.

A breast lift and some weight loss ~ maybe an early onset facelift as well ~ maybe she’s guilty, but otherwise no ~ leastwise not on the smart part.

She misheard them and thought they said “smell if fart people” to which she said she was guilty.

She smelt it cause she dealt it.

Dear Andrea,

I have bad news for you.

Elitism is NOT a measure of your bank account.

It is rather, a derogatory term, denoting an inflated sense of self-worth.

DUH. The idiot doesn't get it. "elite, smart people" doesn't mean in reality. It means in the liberals own mind. Examples: Oboma and Hillary.

Liberals are too dumb to realize how dumb they really are. They think they're brilliant, but everything they've ever done (and will do) has been a total disaster for everyone. They can't do anything right.

Yeah. I think she should plead guilty. She sees HERSELF as a human above all others, but what good has she ever done for the world other than bitch, complain, and blame everyone else for her own failures like all the other dumbass liberals in the world?

So she admits to being on “the other side”. So much for journalistic objectivity.

And I plead guilty to being the best looking man on earth, who is also better “in bed” than any other man alive.

I can also fly, read your mind, and have degrees from Harvard, Yale, and MIT.

Yeah, that’s the ticket...

Liberals are too dumb to realize how dumb they really are

The Great Ronaldus Maximus once said (approximately), "It's not that liberals are dumb. It's that so much of what they know, just isn't so."

Truer words were never spoken. :-)

All of the elite smart people from Obama on down have proved in less than 4 years that the self proclaimed elite smart people are in reality the effete smart people.

Classic example of the Dunning–Kruger effect. They actually believe that they are in some indefinable way, "Elite" and "special."

They are special, but, in a "riding the short bus," sort of way.

I really wish conservatives would just boycott the MSM like the Dems blocked conservatives from appearing on the MSM at their convention.
After all, the very least that happens is that we disagree with almost all the MSM stated ponts of view, So there is no meeting of the minds or compromise possible on true conservative positions.
Let the MSM have a hissy fit, and implode. Their narrow viewership will only decrease as they continue to flail about.
