Gah. I thought Frum prided himself on being erudite?

Elitist: a person who believes that a system or society should be ruled or dominated by an elite.
a person who believes that they belong to an elite

Elite: a group of people considered to be the best in a particular society or category, esp. because of their power, talent, or wealth : China's educated elite | [as adj. ] an elite combat force.

Marines are ELITES because of their training and esprit de corps.

Frum is an ELITIST because he thinks people without Ivy League degrees are cattle.

I take offense to that! I believe that those without Ivy League degrees are sheep, not cattle.

You insult swine. Swine are useful and tasty.
