Elitist and apparently proud of it

David Perdue wants the Georgia Republican nomination for US Senate. But he sounded pretty darn elitist when caught on video at a forum in Bibb County:

The AJC's Political Insider has video and a transcript that includes this:
“I mean, there’s a high school graduate in this race, OK? I’m sorry, but these issues are so much broader, so complex. There’s only one candidate in this race that’s ever lived outside the United States. 
Perdue's comments were intended as a jab at Karen Handel, who lacks a formal college degree. But Perdue's eagerness to be arrogant have surely cost him points with lots of people. Jim Galloway at Political Insider notes Georgia's current lieutenant governor lacks a college degee, as does at least one existing member of Georgia's congressional delegation.

I don't care what Perdue's business background is. Last thing we need in DC is another self proclaimed educated elitist know-it-all who looks down on the constituents back home. Especially one who thinks time living overseas makes him better than those of us who've spent our lives living at home in America, fully immersed in American culture.

  1. Perdue has stepped in it, but not as bad as Deal has, What is with the GOP, they want the democrats to win? All it takes is for a hint of improper behavior to surface and the LSM will keep the story alive and and help the democrats win.
