First Read -

Hillary Clinton's union attack dog bites - “Give me a break! I've got news for all the latte-drinking, Prius- driving, Birkenstock-wearing, trust fund babies crowding in to hear him speak! This guy won't last a round against the Republican attack machine. He's a poet, not a fighter.”"
POLS 101:
Charming. This is part of a diatribe by Clinton supporter Tom Buffenbarger, president of the International Union of Machinists and Aerospace workers. As the linked article reports, he is a "surrogate" who says things the candidate wants to have said, but can't say herself for fear of hurting her own image. He is using class warfare. Apparently he's trying to get across the message that the rough, tough, blue collar worker should vote for Clinton because all the wimpy rich kids are supporting Obama.
