Yeah. Like that.
So, flipping through the channels today, I came across a Stanford-Notre Dame football game. I was just about to change the channel when I heard one of the commentators say that some player (and I’m paraphrasing here) “embodied the blue-collar attitude” that the Stanford football team has.
Stanford : blue collar :: George W. Bush : cowboy
Let me say that again: For over 50% of all workers in the US, if they saved every penny they made for an entire year, AND didn’t pay any taxes, theystill wouldn’t be able to afford a year’s tuition at Stanford. They’d be four grand short. That doesn’t even count books, fees, living expenses, and all that other crap.
So pick another term to describe their football team, would ya? “Blue-collar” just don’t cut it.
