Article: On class in the US - http://goo.gl/hJu0n
Sample quotation:
"I didn’t have a way to say why it made me uncomfortable when people picked on George W. Bush for his accent or his language, or called him a “hick,” when they seemed to suggest that the main problem with this racist, sexist, homophobic, extremely wealthy white man was that he was not sufficiently sophisticated or urban; still didn’t have a way, years later, when Palin was talking about “Real Americans,” to pinpoint the obvious vulnerability she was exploiting ... and to speak about why the further invocation of “hicks” and “trash,” by liberals, seemed so very destructive." 
(6000 words - suck it up; Sady Doyle, Tiger Beatdown)
