Great line of the day 

Atrios writes about "those who think political power and discourse should be in the hands of elites, and those who think otherwise:"
There's a large amount of paternalistic elitism which runs through many, the belief that governance is too important for the orthodontists and the rest of the rabble to have much to do with it and that essentially Democracy is a nice fantasy we should maintain without embracing the reality.
It's an argument which would have more merit if the elites in our discourse hadn't gotten basically everything wrong over the past decade.
Yeah, that's for sure. Emphasis mine.
