Okay, okay. It’s, in fact, Professor Jacobson’s magnificent Palin post from the other day. But it’s what he says afterward to the intelligentsia of the Conservative/Republican Party that’s beautiful in its truthiness. Or would be, if only the Krauthammers and Frums listened to people/gave any credence to opinions…which are…how you say…not in their self-designated sphere of pulling aside the heavy oxblood-red velvet curtains, to issue eloquent, mournful opinings and rock-of-ages wisdom to the lesser intellectual refuse of society scattered patiently about the base of their opera carriage. “Caribou? No, I said ‘carry through’. We have spoken ~ all depart.” And the equipage moves smartly away into the night.
Rush doesn’t live there. Neither, I suspect, does 90% of those who voted GOP/Tea Party in the last election.
We can do without witches in 2012, but we could sure use a little intra-conservative “she may be a witch, but she’s OUR witch” sense of unity. How COULD they ~ and I do mean every last conservative/GOP columnist ~ not rise up IMMEDIATELY and give rise to a vociferous, continuous, FEROCIOUS defense? Sarah Palin’s presidential qualifications/aspirations (or lack thereof) aside: can the party withstand it’s own pundits allowing their vested self interest to override truth and decency itself, if it means a potential rival may have her kneecaps bludgeoned as a party to mass murder? How despicable!
And I know Palin just singes the hair on poor Krauthammer’s nose, among others, but, BY GOD. For all that these yammering, cerebral, cultured, white-gloved conservative icons of the upper echelons of the nation’s social strata deride incivility, character assassination and crude discourse?
What happened to Sarah Palin ~ and is still happening ~ IS AN ABOMINATION.
And these “gentlemen” belie the very word.
