More for the dictionary of American politics 2008...

There's another putdown afoot of you people with your graduate-degree brandishing, French-speaking, Whole Foods-shopping, latte-and-chardonnay drinking, limousine liberaling, flag pin-spurning ways: Maureen Dowd has identified you as card-carrying members of the "Viogner and Volvo crowd." That's for when the media is sick of the term "elitist, out-of-touch Americans."

I know Popessa doesn't do Viogner, but how about Volvo? Me, I've got Viogner in my customized wine rack, but drive a l0-year-old VW Passat. I guess we still qualify as aliens in Real America...

I'm with the Vouvrey and Metro bus crowd. We're very special :).

Then there's the sliver of the population with PhDs who commute through the city on bus from school to school doing part time work--all in hopes of bringing up the next generation of French speaking, wine-tasting liberals.
