Reality Has Jumped The Shark
Sometime Tuesday night, Irony was found dead on the floor on his apartment in Bed-Stuy. He was found clutching a note that said, "Oh, fuck it."
That would be the Lady (yes, Lady, as in, wife to a Lord) Lynn Forester de Rothschild, wife of British banking financier Sir Evelyn Robert Adrian de Rothschild and generally filthy rich socialite, describing how she will not vote for Barack Obama because he is "elitist."
For fuck's sake, woman, you are technically British nobility, and you are pushing forward the meme that Obama is an elitist. Now, I don't know a lot around Lady Rothschild's early background -- from the interviews I've dug up where she discussed such a thing, she says she worked hard at her summer jobs while living in Jersey, which at least rules out the possibility of "indolent rich." But still, she's married into nobility, works at Estee Lauder, holds swank Manhattan parties, and acts like she has the proper class consciousness to describe Obama as an "elitist."
God, class warfare has never seemed so appealing.
