Chasing the Arugula and Collard Green Vote

This news today from the Globe’s Campaign Notebook:

Hillary Clinton's campaign apparently believes that poet Maya Angelou can help her make inroads among African-Americans and the liberal intelligentsia - two groups in which rival Barack Obama dominates. Clinton's camp released an open letter from Angelou last week. Now she's featured in a 60-second TV ad the campaign announced yesterday will air in North Carolina…
Heh.

In the context of the Globe’s writing, isn’t liberal intelligentsia a redundant term?

Harry, you cynic...but thanks for the laugh...the liberal intelligentsia.

I guess 'liberal intelligentsia' don't get 'bitter' or 'clingy.'
