Liberalism = WASP Racism?

Don Surber has an interesting editorial this week, and at least parts of have a bit of the ring of truth.  It’s been said that Democrats are fiscal populists and social elitists (contrary to Republicans, said to be social populists and fiscal elitists).  You can see this at work regularly, for instance, on NPR, with it’s notable upper-middle-class vibe — it’s not uncommon to hear editorials there decrying other news sources on grounds that are essentially “they’re loud and shabby.”

Certainly wouldn’t take it so far as to say it’s a good broad stereotype for liberalism at large, but there’s something in there.
