McCain’s elite support in unreal America

MCCAIN’S ELITE SUPPORT IN UNREAL AMERICA…. A closer look at the most common zip codes for McCain campaign contributors leads to an interesting result. (tip of the hat to Pushback).

1.10021 – New York, N.Y.

2. 85253 – Paradise Valley, Ariz.

3. 10022 – New York, N.Y.

4. 06830 – Greenwich, Conn.

5. 92660 – Newport Beach, Calif.

6. 22101 – McLean, Va.

7. 75205 – Dallas, Texas

8. 77024 – Houston, Texas

9. 78209 – San Antonio, Texas

10. 63124 – St. Louis, Mo.

I suppose St. Louis and those cities in Texas probably qualify as “real America” by McCain campagn standards, but New York, Greenwich, McLean (a wealthy D.C. suburb), and Newport Beach sound like the kind of places where we might find some rascally elitists who aren’t sufficiently “pro-America.”
