Besides, the countess’ dog probably thinks Obama is uppity

Posted by James McPherson on September 17, 2008

One of Hillary Clinton’s supporters says she can’t back Barack Obama, and is throwing her support to John McCain–perhaps because she and Cindy McCain have so much in common. For her part, Clinton says the PUMA-wannabe is making an ill-advised move.

Millionairess Lynn Forester de Rothschild (yes, that’s her real name) who hasn’t worked for years and who “splits her time between London and New York,” says she thinks “Barack Obama is arrogant and has difficulty connecting with average Americans.”

No word yet on how the average Americans who fuel up her jet will react to the news, but Obama’s supporters aren’t exactly crying over it–this seems to be a case of addition by subtraction. For an amusing nutcase view on what the lady meant for Clinton, see this. Another blow to world domination.
