Reverse Snobbery

Having just bashed intellectuals (see below), I now feel the need to bash Maureen's Dowd's column today on what it takes to be a "regular guy (gal)." Apparently John Kerry's disdain for Cheez-Wiz and Barack Obama's concern for the healthfulness of the food he eats disqualify them from relating to working class people, whereas Hillary Clinton's ability to toss down a boilermaker gives her street cred.

Leave aside for a second whether or not the President needs to be "regular." People--including Presidential Candidates--should be able to eat what they want without fear of ridicule and condemnation. It is my observation, moreoever, that lots of different kinds of people like lots of different kinds of food.
