'Let 'Em Drive Hybrids'

Contentions has an amusing post about Barack Obama's dismissive, Marie Antoinette-ish remark to a member of the hoi polloi who had dared to question His Awesomeness about sky-rocketing gas costs.

Update: Taking no prisoners, Mark Steyn comments:
A guy who has never generated a dime of wealth, never had to make payroll, never worked at any job other than his own tireless self-promotion literally cannot comprehend that out there, beyond the far fringes of the motorcade outriders, are people who drive a long distance to jobs whose economic viability is greatly diminished when getting there costs twice as much as the buck-eighty-per-gallon it cost back at the dawn of the Hopeychangey Era.

So what? Your fault. Should have gone to Columbia and Harvard and become a community organizer.
Whatever the heck that is.
