Identifying the middle-class problematic?



[VIDEO] Found via Instapundit, this video of newly minted US Senator Elizabeth Warren from Massachusettes. She appeared to be having a tough time defining what middle-class is. It almost turned into an argument with the reporter she was talking with and unfortunately for her the cameras were rolling.

In last year's election she had some controversy as to her American Indian ancestry. It was under dispute and in spite of that controversy she was able to take the seat of Republican Scott Brown who had in turn won Ted Kennedy's old Senate seat.

The conservative website National Review made this comment: "If you want to play class warfare, as Warren does, you also need to have the courage to talk about who’s in what class, and how your policies will help or harm them."

Indeed!
