"I didn't realize we still had politicians so willing to fudge words and phrases like this in order to paint an image in the public's mind."

You've totally nailed it. This little rant was dog whistle stuff for the base. If he came right out and said "elitists" or "Hollywood North liberals", everyone would know that he was taking a page right out of the Rove/Republican playbook so he uses weasel words instead. You have to remember this is the party that consulted with Republican strategists before the last election. Seems Harper learned his lessons well.
