One More Thing

I've been doing some hardcore housecleaning over the last couple of days, and have had CNN on as background noise. And I have to ask:

What happened to the phrase "working class"?

Coverage of the bailout and the VP debate was filled with references to the "middle class," and "American workers," but "working class" has been nowhere to be found. I mean, I know the United States is supposed to be a classless society. But is "middle class" now officially synonymous with "working class"? Is it like ordering a Tall coffee at Starbucks - the nomenclature's all been supersized?

In other news, Sarah Palin continues to be terrible. That is all.
