People like Hillary Clinton, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush, et al aren’t out of touch simply because they’re wealthy or because they were born into a political dynasty. They’re out of touch with the rest of us because they believe, with every fiber of their beings, that they are intellectually and morally superior to the rest of us. They believe it is their duty to make us live our lives in a correct manner and that it is our obligation to give them the power they need to make that happen. They’re royalty; we’re the great unwashed. Their birthright is to rule; ours is to obey.
So when you see a photo like this of Hillary Clinton pressing the flesh with ordinary people at some diner, you know that every cell in her body is screaming to be let out of that place. Not because the meals there are cheap, but because the people there are beneath her.
