A word used by the far right wing to label people who are intelligent as not being of the people. By doing so, the far right wing is insulting those they wish to reach by saying that couldn't possibly relate to anyone an IQ over 100.
Even thought John McCain owns 7 homes, is worth over 100 million dollars, has an economic advisor who thinks that our recession is caused by whiners, and doesn't have a clue how much a gallon of milk costs, he still calls Obama an elitist.

Indie fans who think that the only "good" music is by obscure bands no one has ever heard of.
We are elitists because we think The Sufjasmithists are the most innovative band in recent history, and anyone who likes The Killers is an idiot.

An elitist used to mean someone of high social status who oppresses a minority group.

Today it just means someone who is intelligent, dresses appropriately, can speak clearly, and doesn't watch much television.

Someone who currently is or aspires for greatness (whether that be financial, or being the best in any field). Elitism is a state of mind and not necessarily tied to family lineage or inherited wealth. Someone who the average person loves to hate on because they know deep down they don't have what it takes to achieve the level of excellence demanded by elitists.
Average person: John's such an elitist! He's so damn obsessed with his business that all of a sudden he thinks hes better than the rest of us who like to sit around watching TV on the weekends with our dick in our hands.

An actual elitist is someone who treats anyone who is not as rich/strong/popular as him/her like dirt. A pretentious jerk who has no friends and acts like he's important to make himself feel better.

However, this is also a word sometimes used in politics to marginalize a person who actually knows what they are talking about, uses scientific evidence, or who knows how to lead. Rather than elect someone who is the most qualified to run a country, people would rather vote for the person they see drinking a beer on the news, and as a result countries end up with Presidents like George W. Bush.
Person: I think that this candidate has a good plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, he has a lot of scientists backing him up.

Idiot: But is that candidate someone I could have a beer with? I want a candidate who understands the needs of the people.

Person: But shouldn't the people have a leader who cares about real issues and bases their decisions off evidence?

Idiot: Sounds like an elitist to me.
