Baroness Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, wife of British banking scion Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, endorsed John McCain -- the guy with a private jet and seven houses -- for President today, calling Obama "an elitist."
As the saying goes, I am not making that up.
When not engaged in politics, de Rothschild -- whom the Wall Street Journal dubbed a "New York socialite" and Portfolio has described as "the flashiest hostess in London" -- has the run of a sprawling estate in Buckinghamshire, north of London, known as Ascott House. In the U.S., she summers on Martha's Vineyard. And she has not been shy with her feelings about Obama prior to today, telling CNN weeks ago -- and without any hint of irony -- that, "frankly, I don't like him. I feel like he is an elitist."Is there anything else to say about McCain and his claims that he is one of us regular people?
