When did expert become elitest?  
Disclaimer:
I have not been following politics regarding this election like I should. And I will admit that I haven't read the proposal for the Gas Tax Holiday. However, I feel the need to comment on this because this is the internet and, like most bloggers, I feel my opinion should be voiced here.

I was listening to NPR while drifting off to sleep last night (in hopes to make my brain smarter, overnight!). I was listening to a story about the Gas Tax Holiday and how 230 economists signed a letter that read, if I may paraphrase, OMFG NO!!!11 THIS IS A FUCKING BAD IDEA!

And what did Senator Clinton have to say about the opinion of economists? Why she said, "I'm not going to put my lot in with economists," and went on to say that it was an elitist opinion. Article Here

So as my subject line says, when did expert opinion become elitist opinion?
