Associated with the election of George W. Bush in 2004 to the Presidency of the United States, there was a great outpouring of elitist sentiment from the American Left. Average Americans were much scorned.

I decided to document the elitism of that time on a blog I set up for that purpose called "Leftists as Elitists". That blog still exists but Google has deleted from it all but the most recent posts. Don't trust Google if you want your writings to endure on Blogspot!

Being a cautious old conservative however (conservatism = caution) I kept exact copies of everything I ever posted on that blog and I have now uploaded most of those "missing" blog posts to this site -- so all the horrors of 2004 and 2005 are still available for all to see. This page is an index giving access to them:
